Usually, the unit-cell of a crystal is made up of lattice points and basis, but all the crystallography software like VESTA doesn't show the basis, is there any software that could show the basis?

  • $\begingroup$ I think that if you obtain the primitive cell, and then remove the periodicity (converting your system into molecular), you will have your basis. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Could I remove periodicity in VESTA? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Jack, it's possible that @Camps didn't see your reply, because you didn't ping him. If Camps doesn't know whether or not periodicity can be removed in VESTA, I suggest asking that as a separate question. $\endgroup$ Jun 11, 2023 at 16:28
  • $\begingroup$ I gave my +1 long ago, but now that it has been more than 1 year, can you update us please? Are you still urgently or actively in need of an answer to this question? Did you figure it out? $\endgroup$ Dec 9, 2023 at 17:14
