The method that I am following in creating a hexagonal lattice POSCAR file is by downloading it from https://materialsproject.org/ website. Now, I want to learn how to create it manually starting from given information in an article. Could someone of you give me a detailed method to do that? Please be detailed and thank you in advance for devoting time to read and answer this question.
