MolIso a program for colour-mapped iso-surfaces

Moliso is a program to generate color mapped transparent 3D iso-surfaces from experimental XD grid and gaussian cube files.


  • Correct transparency mode
  • Isosurfaces with adjustable colour gradient.
  • Atomic displacement ellipsoids (ADP's) with xd.res-/xd.mas- or *cif-files.
  • Line, point and filling mode.
  • Easy to control via menu, mouse, keyboard and ini-file
  • Easy to create screenshots(*.ppm)
  • Easy to create rotating videos (*.avi) in various codecs (vfw)(Windows Version only).
  • Experimental resolution independet *.PDF file export.
  • XD grid files and gaussian cube files can be used.
  • Constrainable colour gradient.
  • Sphere maping for pseudo reflection.
  • Windows and LINUX-versions are avaiable.
