What is this?

This is a program for the fast visualization of molecules in an environment of OS/2 and eComStation operating systems. It had been initially based on the sources of the ViewMol3D v. 3.75 program, but later has been substantially redeveloped so as to fit our requirements and to be compatible with the WarpMesaGL graphic library.

PMViewMol3D is able to work with output files produced by the following programs:

How it works?

The program is very simple in use. You do not need to follow File→Open…​ or Import, etc. and to search a file in directories. It is enough to run it from command line with a file name as a parameter. One can do this even simpler — just drag-and-drop file icon onto icon of PMViewMol3D. The program reads a latest available set of cartesian coordinates from the file and creates a window with model of the molecule.

Here are some examples of molecules visualized by PMViewMol3D.

Where to get?

The latest available version 0.2.3 beta can be downloaded here (1.6 Mb).

Latest changes

  • Added possibility to rotate molecules using mouse.

  • Added possibility to zoom in/out molecules with q and w keys.

  • Now program reads first table of Cartesian coordinates (in Bohrs) in (PC) GAMESS output files.

  • The compiler has been changed.

  • The WarpMesaGL library has been updated.
