[1,2,3 or abc] or [abc a1b1c1] or [x11 x12 x13 y11 y12 y13 z11 z12 z13]
Orientates the model along; a (1 or
1 0 0), b (2 or
0 1 0), c (3 or
0 0 1) or any other crystallographic direction e.g.
123, which sets the current normal along the $(1 \times a+2 \times b+3 \times c)$ vector. Two crystallographic directions (from and to) may be specified to align the current view normal along the (to-from) vector. Also a full Cartesian matrix can be specified. If the directions are signed or consist of multiple digits, all components should be of the same length like in
1 2 0 1 0 1or
-1 +1 +1(same as
-1 0 1 0 1). If no arguments are given, the current Cartesian orientation matrix is printed.
- -r: uses the reciprocal lattice instead of the direct.
>>matr 100- sets the current normal along the crystallographic a direction.
>>matr 100 011sets the current normal along the (
0 1 1 -- 1 0 0) direction (the normal direction changes if from and to are swapped)
