Sixth week of coding

Welcome to the seventh weekly check-in. I'll be sharing my progress for the sixth week of coding.

What did you do this week?

  1. Updated Molecular module: made it more pythonic, implemented ribbon actor, added support to pass numpy arrays (earlier, atomic data could only be added by using the add_atom)
  2. Created a PR to -
    • update the helical motion animation to use a single line actor, added textblocks to display velocity of the particle. Preview -

    • For brownian motion animation, I removed rotation(azimuth) and box actor, added textblock to display the number of particles and to show the simulation steps. Preview -

  3. Updated surface animation (used gridUI, added multiple animations). Preview -

  4. Created a topic on vtk discourse forum to query about gaps in bonds (tried resolving it by manipulating vtkProperties: BackfaceCulling, FrontfaceCulling but was unsuccessful)
  5. Read about molecular surface (theory behind it)

What is coming up next week?

  1. Update molecular module by adding tests, ribbon actor.
  2. Try to implement molecular surface representation
  3. Interactivity of the molecules

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I didn't get stuck anywhere this week.
