[lammps-users] how to view data file with VMD on windows?

Dear all,
According to the geometry of the considering structure, I calculated their x,y,z values and copied them into a data file example. Now I want to see the shape of my structure in Windows using VMD. What should I do?

thanks a lot

Hi Samira
Once you install VMD, you need to open the “Tk Console” menu option and type topotools commands to read the data file (using the “topo readlammpsdata” command). I wrote a short README file here:

This README file might not explain everything you need to know, but hopefully it gets you started.
