create_box command


create_box region-ID 


create_box mybox 


This command creates a simulation box based on the specified region for on-lattice and off-lattice spatial simulations. Thus a region command must first be used to define a geometric domain. SPPARKS encloses the region (block, sphere, etc) with an axis-aligned (orthogonal) box which becomes the simulation domain.

The read_sites command can also be used to define a simulation box.


The app_style command must be used to define an application before using the create_box command.
