Overview

Can display multiple copies of the unit cell.

Example

run supercell.py
fetch 2x19, async=0
supercell 2,1,1, 2x19, green
supercell 1,1,2, 2x19, orange, name=super2

The Code

'''

PyMOL python script (load with `run supercell.py`)
Usage: See "help supercell"

DESCRIPTION

    Draw a supercell, as requested by Nicolas Bock on the pymol-users
    mailing list (Subject: [PyMOL] feature request: supercell construction
    Date: 04/12/2010 10:12:17 PM (Mon, 12 Apr 2010 14:12:17 -0600))

USAGE

    supercell a, b, c [, object [, color [, name]]]

ARGUMENTS

    a, b, c = integer: repeat cell in x,y,z direction a,b,c times
    {default: 1,1,1}

    object = string: name of object to take cell definition from

    color = string: color of cell {default: blue}

    name = string: name of the cgo object to create {default: supercell}
