GDIS Molecule Modeller

Model and manipulate molecules, and create high-quality renderings of them


A GTK+ based program for the display and manipulation of isolated molecules, periodic systems and crystalline habits. It is in development, but is nonetheless fairly functional. It has the following features:

  • Support for several file types (CIF, BIOSYM, XYZ, XTL, MARVIN, and GULP)
  • A simple molecular creation and manipulation tool
  • A dialogue for creating starting configurations for molecular dynamics simulations
  • Assorted tools for visualization (geometry information, region highlighting, etc.)
  • Animation of BIOSYM files (also rendered animations, see below) GDIS also allows you to perform the following functions through other packages:

  • Model rendering (courtesy of POVRay)
  • Energy minimization (courtesy of GULP)
  • Morphology calculation (courtesy of cdd)
  • Space group processing (courtesy of SgInfo)
  • View the Periodic Table (courtesy of GPeriodic)
  • Load additional filetypes, such as PDB (courtesy of Babel)
