create_atoms command doesn't work


I am running below input, creating atoms in 'hi' group.
However, the result log file shows 0 atoms in hi group.
Can you let me know why it happens?

Thank you,

Works for me with the 31Jan2014 version: "8073 atoms in group hi".
Since you did not provide the data file, I removed the read_data
command and added a create_box command.


I had the same problem.

The main cause is the boundary condition of s in the z direction.
Use the periodic boundary in that direction and after creating atoms use the change_box command in order to change the boundary conditions

Sincerely you
