Export images in vector format
« on: January 26, 2021, 11:03 »
Hi all,
Is there any way to export images from "viewer" in any vector format?
Thanks.
Hadi

The 3D plots in the viewer often involves isosurfaces, colormaps, contour plots, etc, which are not very suitable for plotting using vector graphics.

If you however only want to present atomic structure (bonds, and atoms), you can use the Python API to extract this data and plot these using some external Python 3D vector graphics plotting framework.

The closest possible option is to use the Povray tools, the output file is sort of vector format, at least it uses primitives for atoms and spheres, bonds as cylinders, and so on...
