Re: pregenerated sphere packings
The making of the initial assembly of particles in DEM is an
important and often time consumming step. So I don't think I can help
you, but I think that a such process of generation of packings of
particles should very interesting and usefull.

I would like to have pregenerated (periodic) packing of spheres which
could be used to fill arbitrary volumes just by putting one cell next to
another and then clip the result to get the exact shape. I use constant
sphere radius. How would you generate such packing? I imagine like 10k
spheres. Would it be useful for other people to have it in yade as text
file and some utilities to use it?
I know yade cannot do it at the moment, but perhaps PFC can?
