Crystal Lattice Structures

  1. May 3, 2005 #1
    Hello, my name is Kenichi, from japan.
    Inorder to draw Crystal Lattice 3D Structures, what libraries for free out there to be used with C programming language ? I am still a C novice.
    I wonder, in chemical simulation research do you also program using C language plus some libraries to drawing, modeling etc.

    I used to hear of opengl, and i tried it too, but i could only draw 2 3d spheres with no bond because i don't know how to draw a bond :blushing:, and it really took me a lot of time, perhaps even much much more if i wanted to complete the whole structure of a crystal compound.

    Also, some people advise me to use windows programming, but i think this is like crazy because windows programming needs me to code much logner than opengl. is it correct ?

    What should i do now, please advice me. I need urgently help from you on how to modelling a movable chemical compound in 3d space.

    Thank you.
