Hi all,

I would like to create a simple rectangular simulation box filled with
spherical particles (such as Argon atoms) for testing purposes. What
would be the easiest way to create such system? Is it even possible
with vmd or namd?

At this point, I can only think of using a solvate plugin and creating
a box around small protein, then deleting the protein and
equilibrating the box without it, but this doesn't seem optimal. Is
there another plugin/method that would be more suitable?

Thanks in advance!
