VESTA is a 3D visualization program for structural models, volumetric data such as electron/nuclear densities, and crystal morphologies. Some of the novel features of VESTA are listed below. • Deal with multiple structural models, volumetric data, and crystal morphologies in the same window.• Support multiple tabs corresponding to files.• Support multiple windows with more than two tabs in the same process.• Deal with virtually unlimited number of objects such as atoms, bonds polyhedra, and polygons on isosurfaces (theoretical limit on 32bit operating system is 1,073,741,823)• Support lattice transformation from conventional to non-conventional lattice by using matrix.
The transformation matrix is also used to create superlattice and sublattice.• Visualize interatomic distances and bond angles that are restrained in Rietveld analysis with RIETAN-FP.• Transparent isosurfaces can be overlap with structural models.• Isosurface can be colored on the basis of another physical quantity.• Arithmetic operations among multiple volumetric data files.• High quality smooth rendering of isosurfaces and sections.• Export high-resolution graphic images exceeding Video card limitation. VESTA is a successor to two 3D visualization programs, VICS and VEND, in the. VESTA runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It is contributed free of charge for non-commercial users. Circumstances behind the development of VESTAVESTA is originated from two GLUT- and GLUI-based applications, VICS and VEND, developed by and during 2001-2004. Parallels desktop 3.0 for mac. They saw the light of day at the end of 2002 and, since then, continued their growth to be used widely in a variety of studies. However, we never get full satisfaction from their usability and performance.
CrystalMaker is a powerful Mac OS X app designed to help you create, manipulate, and animate graphic representations for various molecular or crystal structures.
First, the combined use of VICS and VEND to visualize both crystal and electronic structures via text files is rather troublesome; on-the-fly visualization of these two kinds of images is highly desired. Second, their graphical user interface (GUI) is not very user-friendly because they are based on the old-fashioned toolkits, GLUT and GLUI, which have been no longer upgraded.

At the end of June 2004, one of the main developer Dilanian leaved the project and both VICS and VEND became unlikely to continue its progress.
Then I decided to create a new program employing a modern C++ GUI framework.We at first upgraded VICS to VICS-II with a new state-of-art GUI and further integrated VICS-II and VEND into the next-generation 3D visualization system VESTA, adding new capabilities. Please refer to for the further information about the VENUS package. 3.4.4 • Fixed a few bugs regarding calculation of polyhedra. • Fixed a regression since ver. 3.4.1 that some of atoms at borders of unit cell were missing when exporting data as VASP or DL_POLY formats. 3.4.3 • Fixed a remaining regression introduced in ver. 3.4.1 regarding calculation of polyhedra.
3.4.2 • Fixed a few regressions introduced in ver. 3.4.1 regarding calculation of polyhedra.
• Fixed a minor bug in ver. 3.4.1 that causes the program to crash when reading CIF files. • Fixed a bug where specified bond lengths slightly increase when you save and reopen molecular data. 3.4.1 • Fixed an occasional crash when searching bonds. • Fixed a bug where calculation of bond distances and angles occasionally reports wrong values on ver. • Fixed a long-standing bug where a part of faces of coordination polyhedron is missing when more than four atoms are aligned on the same plane.
• Fixed a bug where some of monoclinic space group settings with the unique axis 'a' (e.g., #9 Cc) could not be read from files. • When exporting data to VASP or DL_POLY format, now the entire phases will be merged if the data contains more than two phases. • Fixed a bug that VESTA could not read the fixed-format PDB and MXDORTHO format having no spaces between two digits. • Preliminary support of reading the macromoleuclar CIF (mmCIF) format. • Enabled to export the ball-and-stick model to the STL format.
3.4.0 • Reimplemented routines for calculation of bond distances, angles, and dihedral angles so that calculation of standard uncertainty (s.u.) takes into account of crystal symmetry. • Updated a code for reading magCIF to support the final specification of magCIF 1.0. • Fixed a bug that may crash the application when reading some data of flat molecules. • Fixed a minor bug when reading PDB and Xcrysden files.
