This page gives an overview on the different types of molecular graphics that may be generated using the MolArch+ program.
The MolArch+ program is suitable for the representation of simple wire-, capped-, ball-and-stick-, and CPK-type molecular models. It is written almost completely in FORTRAN, and features a very simple graphics display and a commandline only, but it is fully interfaced to produce high-quality models with the POVRAY ("Persistence of Vision") ray-tracing program or any VRML ("Virtual Reality Modeling Language") viewing program. The program can be used to visualize organic and inorganic structures, solid-state crystal-structures, molecular orbitals imported e.g. from GAUSSIAN, different types of molecular surfaces with mapped properties. The command-line interface and the batch-processing capabilities make it a highly versatile tool for the visualization, animation, and automated geometry analysis of a wide range of molecular scenarios; a large number of different file types may be imported and/or exported. The Program runs un LINUX systems only.
All graphics shown on this page are small JPG-graphics of low resolution only; all images may be created by MolArch+ and POVRAY at any high-quality resolution.
