iRASPA is a visualization package (with editing capabilities) aimed at
material science. Examples of materials are metals, metal-oxides, ceramics,
biomaterials, zeolites, clays, and metal-organic frameworks. iRASPA leverages
the latest visualization technologies with stunning performance. It can
handle large structures (hundreds of thousands of atoms), including ambient
occlusion, with high frame rates.
iRASPA is provided by David Dubbeldam (University of Amsterdam), Sofia Calero (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Thijs J. H. Vlugt (Delft University of Technology).
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install iraspa, simply use the following command:
