Thanks for the explanation. Now I follow your instruction and plot it
again. It still does not make sense. I use period boundary condition to
simulate in a cubic box with dimension 50. The molecule size is
cellBasisVector1 48.12900161743164 0 0
cellBasisVector2 0 42.979000091552734 0
cellBasisVector3 0 0 43.9109992980957
cellOrigin 0.5063787698745728 1.1608952283859253 0.11323882639408112.
Please find the picture in the attachment. Thanks.
