It is possible to read in LAMMPS' dump format using VMD, but I believe it
only reads in the dump atom format, not the dump custom. Also, you need to
make sure the coordinates are not scaled (dump_modify 1 scale no) and you
might need a structure file (either a charmm psf file or a pdb file, if
you are simulating a protein). Unfortunately, VMD doesn't yet read a
LAMMPS data file (from where it can glean bond connectivity, which is all
you really need to properly display molecules in VMD).
I've included a python script that can read in a LAMMPS data file and spit
out a properly formated psf file (also a pdb file, which is useful to
quickly look at the system you will simulate with LAMMPS), although none
of the atom or residue names will be correct (since this information isn't
found in a lammps data file). The only requirements are Numeric Python or
numpy. Type "lammps2pdbpsf -h" to see the available options. It's not too
robust, but it should work on most lammps data files.
