Fine structure diagrams-drawing program

  1. May 13, 2010 #1
    hey I was trying to draw some fine structure diagrams like this one


    but it is too slow and unflexible with normal graphic softwares. Does anyone know a good graphing software *expecifically* designed for atom structure diagrams like the above one?
    Thanks, valleyman

    If u just want to draw the diagram, knowing all the positions, then u can try "gnuplot".

    well I have to make many diagrams and gnuplot - as it's not made for this - would be slower and harder than simple graphic softwares so I think it's not the correct way to do this. I'm looking for some *specialized* program for this kind of graphs, maybe the one that the books' authors use to make these diagrams in their books
