(hkl) planes & [uvw] directions

show all pictures

In addition to the objects created from a unit cell or added from the interactive tools, several [uvw] directions and (hkl) planes can be associated to a graphic representation. Moreover, indication objects (for example, distance indications) are used to help the location of a graphic representation.

(hkl) planes are used in order to orientate in a precise and quick way the graphic representations (plane projection of stand-up projection). Moreover, the (hkl) planes can be translated along their normal by interplanar spacing steps and then show an (hkl) plane family or a ABAB... stacking for example.
