KPLOT Download Area
The program KPLOT was written by Rudolf Hundt (1941 - 2020) at the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry,
University of Bonn, Germany and is designed to draw and analyze crystal
structures. Starting from the first version in 1979 the software has been
continuously improved and updated. It provides:
Various strategies for step-wise building up crystal structure models
Facility to work with two crystal structures at the same time
Tools for the comparison of two crystal structures
Plotting of ball-and-stick models, thermal ellipsoids and coordination
Symmetry analysis and transformation, space group determination
Calculation of interatomic distances, angles and torsion angles
Interfaces to SHELX, ORTEP, SCHAKAL, MISSYM, LAZY PULVERIX
You can download the manual as well as a brief version history. A tutorial as well as a comprehensive reference manual (both as
PDF-files) are contained in the download archives below.
