playing around with the dump image command I came over a restiveness. I inserted some atoms in a lattice with create_atoms, and changed diameter to 0.2 by set command. Computes and dump local/custom are working like expected. The command dump image ignores diameter and uses 1.0, after dump_modify adiam it works as well. Is it because of using create_atom?


If you want to use dump image with right particles diameters rendered independent from an atom type (e.g. fix insert/pack etc.) you have just to use:

dump myDump all image 100 dump.*.jpg type diameter
