Please note that the Orbital Viewer program is provided for FREE, without any warranty. This program is the result of many, many hours of work, and I (David Manthey) would greatly appreciate an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you enjoy it. Questions, suggestions, and bug reports are all welcome.
|Draw Any Atom||Any atom with the principal orbital quantum number, n<=30. See the Grand Table.|
|Draw Any Molecule||Any molecule can be formed using Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals (LCAO). This includes all hybrid orbitals.|
|Three Types of Rendering||Point probability plots, polygon surface plots, and raytracing (both probability and surface plots).|
|Asymptotes||Show the locations where the probability goes to zero.|
|Translucence and Index of Refraction||Sometimes you can see the orbital structure better if the orbital is partially clear.|
|Animations||Create AVI files or sequences of TIF, PPM, or BMP files.|
|Stereo||Red-blue (anaglyph), stereogram (SIRDS), stereoscope, LCD shutter glasses, Chromadepth, and overlay.|
|Cutaway||See the interior of the orbital.|
|Lighting||Light the orbital from any location. Cast shadows.|
|File Formats||Save TIFF, PPM, BMP, AVI, and VRML files.||4f0.wrl|
14 September 2004: Orbital Viewer 1.04 released: the colors used in red-blue (anaglyph) stereo images can now be changed. The help file and manual have also been updated.
10 April 2002: Orbital Viewer 1.03 released: added output option for Digistar files.
8 October 2001: Rearranged the site slightly. I also switched web hosting companies, which means the old ~cprimus address will no longer work.
10 April 2001: Orbital Viewer 1.02 released: the program now prevents multiple copies from running, has a progress bar when compressing AVIs, and has two minor bug fixes. Plus there are some changes to the install program.
10 July 2000: Finally posted the examples from the manual.
11 April 1998: Orbital Viewer 1.01 released: two minor bug fixes. OV.PDF updated: minor typos fixed.
1 March 1998: Orbital Viewer 1.00 released. OV.PDF first posted.
