The Official PovChem Distribution Page


PovChem version 2 is now available, with a nice graphical user interface! Check it out by following this link!

PovChem version 1.00 is still available for free here, though!

I've finally had a few spare days to get this version out! :) Version 1.00 has many new features, including a configuration file so that there is no longer any need to recompile to change options - all options are also now available to people who download only the executable. I have improved the machinery for creating animations, and added and optimized a number of other more minor features.

Please see the manual for a more complete list of features. The manual is done now, too! In there you will also find information on how to use the program, how to report bugs to me, known bugs, etc.

Please see the legal information section of the manual before continuing.

These are links to download PovChem:
