x Unit cell shown shifted by [x, y, z] = [½, 0, 0]
x Show coordination planes. Unit cell shown shifted by [x, y, z] = [½, 0, 0] (if not already done)
x Structure set on one vertex. Unit cell shown shifted by [x, y, z] = [½, 0, 0] (if not already done)
x Hide reference lines of unit cell. The twelve atoms coordinated to the central atom remain visible [3:6:3]
x Reset
Hint
The cubic closest-packed structure is equivalent to the face-centered cubic structure. This becomes evident when the unit cell of the face-centered cubic structure is stood up on a corner.
