Stand-alone unit cell viewer for PCs

A new standalone viewer is available so that you can view PoreXpert void network structures (‘unit cells’) in 3D virtual reality. However, because it is new, Windows Defender and virus checkers do not know about it, and may regard it with suspicion.  Please be assured that it is virus free, and signed as being validated software from PoreXpert Ltd.  So you will need to confirm to continue download anyway rather than quit at any stage.  It also uses MS Visual Studio and other MS dynamic link libraries, so you will have to agree Microsoft Terms and Conditions as well as our own.

To look at various different void network structure types, download this demonstration file containing the 7 different structure types listed below.  Or you can view your own .pxt or .porexpert files, or look at the demo.porexpert file supplied with the download.

  • (1) Horizontal: Small to large. Size 30x30x30. Cluster ratio: 6
  • (2) Vertically banded. Size 30x30x30. Cluster ratio: 3
  • (3) Horizontal: Large surface throats. Size 10x10x10. Cluster ratio not assigned.
  • (4) Horizontal: Large surface throats. Size 30x30x30. Cluster ratio: 3
  • (5) Large centre zone. Size 25x25x25. Cluster ratio: 2.5
  • (6) Small centre zone.Size 30x30x30. Cluster ratio: 2
  • (7) Random. Size 30x30x30. Cluster ratio: 2
