Dear everyone,


Hi, I’m Hyun-seok Kim a graduate student at Seoul National University in South Korea.

While using the ‘nanotube builder’ included in Avogadro I’ve noticed that (n,m) specification of nanotube is restricted maximum up to 9.

Is there a particular reason?

Furthermore, it will be nice to know how can I draw a nanotube with (n,m) indexes over 9.

Such as (12, 0) or (12,1).

Thank you.


Best regards

Hyun-seok Kim
