The Visual Editor for MCNP

The current RSICC MCNP6 release ONLY includes the MCNPX Visual Editor.  The RSICC release does NOT include an MCNP Visual Editor or a Linux version of the Visual Editor.

The MCNPX Visual Editor shipped with the current RSICC release.  A more recent beta version is available to students who attend any Visual Editor Consultants MCNP training class.

 

See Videos of the MCNP Visual Editor's capabilities.  Click Here.

 

The Visual Editor was adapted to work with MCNPX through a grant from NASA.  To download the report issued to NASA at the conclusion of the Phase 2 grant (issued November 2008. 7.5 Meg), Click Here.

Do Not Modify Input Option

Another user concern is the Visual Editor modifies the input file, changing the format and order of the data within the input file.  A new file->open option has been added to the Visual Editor to allow the user to open an input file without modification by the Visual Editor.  In this mode, no changes are made to the input file and the un-modified input file can be viewed in the input window.  However, because the Fortran to Visual Editor interface has been bypassed, none of the creation capabilities will be available in this mode.  Display capabilities such as particle tracks, 3D ray-traced images, tally plots and cross section plots can still be generated.

This mode can be used by users who only want to generate display data and are not creating or modifying the input file.
