Kalzium @ 3D, Part III
With all that done, Kalzium now requires OpenBabel 2.1-preview as of yesterday ;-) But As OpenBabel 2.1 will be released in two or three month that shouldn't be a problem, the 3D-feature is not compiled of OpenBabel 2.1 is not found anyway.
Ok, this is the result of our hacking:
As you can see the molecule is on the right, you can simply rotate it with your mouse. On the left you have an overview over all atoms in the molecule. If you select an atom there it will be highlighted in the 3D-view (see the blue blur around two atoms?). The number in the QTreeWidget is the internal ID of the atom. I am not sure what information to put into that treewidget. If you have ideas please comment to this blog or write a mail to kalzium AT kde DOT org. That is of valid for the whole GUI. Any idea might lead to a better GUI!
Currently the widget supports for different "designs" of the rendered molecule. I GIMP'ed a little to show you all in one view:
The molecule you see is 7H-Purin-6-amine and includes some double bonds. Again: Do you see room for improvements? If so, tell us :-)
PS: The rendering was done without hardware acceleration but is very fast
PPS: This is the lowest of three quality levels. The best looks much better but I forgot to switch to it when doing the screenies
