Compute bond lengths

This modifier computes the length of each bond and stores the value in a new bond property named Length.

A typical use case of this modifier is in conjunction with the Color Coding modifier to visualize the length of each bond. Furthermore, the Histogram lets you plot the overall distribution of bond lengths in a system computed by this modifier.

Note that, depending on the situation, the Coordination Analysis modifier may provide an alternative. It computes the distribution of neighbor distances in a system of particles without explicit bonds.
