Strategy 3

Nothing is known about the crystal description. The program user should consider carefully, whether to use EUHEDRAL in this situation. In some cases it turned out to be useful.

Step 1

You can start from different "spheres" (meaning 7 different dodecahedrons). The command is bestsphere. The refined models are stored in files model1.ins until model7.ins. The best model is additionally stored as name.ins.

Further steps

You can use crystrot or crystrotsimplex for (fine-)tuning of the crystal orientation as in Strategy 2.

Then finish with (repeated?) refinements of volume and distance (or amoeba) as in Strategy 1.
