$POINTS group (not required) This group is used to input points at which properties will be computed. This first card in the group must contain the string ANGS or BOHR, followed by an integer NPOINT, the number of points to be used. The next NPOINT cards are read in free format, containing the X, Y, and Z coordinates of each desired point. ========================================================== $GRID group (not required) This group is used to input a grid (plane or cube) on which properties will be calculated. This group should be given if WHERE=GRID in $ELPOT or $ELDENS. This output will be in the PUNCH file whenever OUTPUT=PUNCH or BOTH. MODGRD = 0 orthonormalize the grid vectors = 1 normalize the grid vectors ORIGIN(i) = coordinates of one corner of the grid/cube. XVEC(i) = vector from ORIGIN to an adjacent corner "X" of the grid (or cube). The XVEC direction need not be parallel to the X-axis of the molecule. YVEC(i) = vector to the adjacent corner "Y" of grid/cube. ZVEC(i) = vector to the adjacent corner "Z" of the cube, given if and only if MODGRD=1. SIZE = grid increment in all directions (default 0.25) UNITS = units of the above five values, it can be either ANGS (the default) or BOHR. GRDPAD = grid padding, like GRDPAD in $FMOPRP, but applied to non-FMO runs. Default: 0, which means padding is not used so one must specify ORIGIN. Two dimensional grids may be drawn with the graphics program MEPMAP provided with GAMESS. Several programs will accept the 3-dimensional CUBE format. Note that MacMolPlt draws 2D and 3D density maps without any need to pre-compute them inside GAMESS by this group. User *must* input orthogonal XVEC/YVEC/ZVEC directions! ==========================================================
