This is the demo of the release version of the SpaceGroupVisualizer. The demo version allows you to use all features and shows all space groups (2, 4, 12, 14, 15, 18, 19, 35, 43, 53, 62, 64, 73, 92, 135, 141, 162, 164, 166, 194, 199, 205, 225, 227) of the Brief Teaching Edition of Voume A of the IUCr International Tables for Crystallography. In addition you can visualize the spacegroups 1, 88 and 230. You can buy licences to make the full set  (complete edition) of all 230 space groups available. For pricing and orders please download the order form.

There exist 230 symmetry space groups in 3D space, which are shown as 2D projections in the International Tables for Crystallography Volume A. The SpaceGroupVisualizer is a visualisation software that is the perfect addition to the International Tables for Crystallography Volume A, as it visualizes all 230 space groups in 3D, lets you freely rotate and move the crystal cells, offers real 3D impressions with Green/Magenta or Red/Cyan glasses, lets you select subsets of symmetries and animates the effect of symmetries on the unique cell elements. The SpaceGroupVisualizer therefore allows you to get good grasp on the symmetry structure of a space group much more easily.
