Perform large-scale deformations of materials and biomolecules interactively with this powerful editor.

This extension contains a powerful editor to easily twist molecular systems with just a few clicks.

This editor may be applied to any molecular system: nanotubes, proteins, etc., and may be used to rapidly produce large-scale deformations (e.g. unfold a protein, move an alpha helix, position a linker, force a carbon nanotube to buckle, etc.).

Interactive simulation may be applied simultaneously to produce physically-based structures while constraining some atom positions.

Usage

  1. Select the Twister editor (Editors menu > Modeling > Twister, shortcut: T).
  2. Click on an atom to add a control point (materialized by a yellow sphere) that will constrain the atom's position (Ctrl+Click or Cmd+Click to remove the control point).
  3. Press and drag an atom to move and deform a molecule.
Twister is an extension for SAMSON,
the integrated platform for molecular design.

To use Twister:

1. Create your free account and choose a molecular design plan
2. Download and install SAMSON on your computer
3. Subscribe to a Standard, Professional or Enterprise plan


When you restart SAMSON, the extension will be automatically installed
and will be usable directly from within SAMSON.
