Full elastic constant tensor AMSET

Dear Sir,
Is the full elastic tensor has been implemented in AMSET? Do we need to reinstall the AMSET to get the new updates? So, how can we take the elastic constants now? Shall we average the all elastic constants obtained with the DFT calculation.

AMSET now supports full elastic, dielectric, and piezoelectric tensors. You can see an example input file here: https://github.com/hackingmaterials/amset/blob/e1a568abdb5c88c32fd84b5ded507227ba32b46e/examples/Si/settings.yaml

You can update your amset version by running

pip install --upgrade amset

Please let me know if you run into any trouble.
