Thanks for your reply.
I want to simulate a sphere shape protein in the solution in NPT condition.
I tried to fix the ratio between x and y, and start system with cubic PBC box.
However, the resulting system has long box length along z; twice as those along x or y.
How can I keep the box cubic?
Or is there any other way that I can run NPT simulation for sphere shape protein?
