NanoCap is a generic application for the construction of low energy fullerene and capped nanotube structures. It provides an ideal tool to accompany the study of finite carbon molecules using computer simulation. The implementation involves a standalone application which includes a GUI and allows for dynamic visual inspection through 3D rendering. In addition, the NanoCap core libraries can be used in custom Python scripts that enabled the user to produce structures in bulk or to include the structure generation routines into pre-existing code.
- Capping of nanotubes of arbitrary chirality
- Construction of fullerenes of any radius
- 3D rendering for real time structure inspection
- Managed storage of structures in local database
Dear concerned, Feeling this software could be of great help to me, I downloaded the zip file and went through the read me file of the Installation guide provided wherein it is asked to mount the Nanocap.dmg file. But I could not find any such kind of file with extension ".dmg". Kindly help. Thanking you. Regards, Emon Barua M.Tech student Department of Mechanical Engineering Tezpur University
