Visualize initial DPD data file by VMD

Hello all,

Could you please help me to visualize my initial DPD file by using VMD (or other programs).
The structure of my file is: (atom-type, atom-ID, x, y, z, molecule-ID) with around 200,000 atoms.
Many thanks for your help.

Cheers,

XC

Hello all,

hello!

Could you please help me to visualize my initial DPD file by using VMD (or other programs).

could you please *not* post e-mails that mostly contain
content that has no relation at all to your question.

The structure of my file is: (atom-type, atom-ID, x, y, z, molecule-ID) with around 200,000 atoms.

how should that be possible with this little information?
you don't provide details about what error messages or
warnings you get. you don't explain whether you have
a principal problem to read in data files at all, or
whether it is only with this specific data file. you
don't say which programs you have already tried. you
don't provide an example. have you tried a smaller
or different data file? was that successful? have
you tried one of the files provided in the lammps
distribution?

please keep in mind, that answers to a request are
always the better the better the question is.

with so little information, only some generic statements
can be made, such as:

the format of a data file is described in great detail
in the documentation for the read_data command.

for most atom styles, the topotools plugin in VMD can
read data files. documentation for the latest version is here:

worst case you can always do a "run 0" in lammps
and dump the coordinates in an atom or xyz style
trajectory
