orix is an open-source python library for analysing orientations and crystal symmetry.

The package defines objects and functions for the analysis of orientations represented as quaternions or 3D rotation vectors accounting for crystal symmetry. Functionality builds primarily on top of numpy and matplotlib and is heavily inspired by the MATLAB package MTEX.

If analysis using orix forms a part of published work please cite the manuscript at the following link. You can also find demos in the orix-demos repo, visit the user guide, or try out the user guide notebooks interactively in the browser by clicking the Binder link above and navigating to the doc/ directory.

orix is released under the GPL v3 license.
