Dear MP Team,
I have few material IDs (mp-xxxx) for which I want to download molecular images at different rotation angles such that the molecules appear like in 2d or in 3d (attached few shots from mp-6920). Basically, I want to download .png/ .jpeg screenshots of molecules from the Materials Project’s viewing window or widget by applying some selection criteria (no unit cell, polyhedra, certain rotation angle etc.). How to do that by using any application or API provided by Materials Project? I am not looking to manually download the .cif files and then using a 3rd party software to capture the images.
