Abstract. A new 3-dimensional graphic system, which is suitable especially for inorganic structures, has been developed aiming at an interface tool in the crystal structure design support system "Crystruct" on Fujitsu S-4 series (UNIX workstation, full compatible with Sun Sparc series). User can build an imaginary structure by assembling existing crystal structure using 3D graphics. After modeling crystal structure, crystal structure data can be extracted by function of 'Unit cell identification', or 'Space group identification'.
