Hello everyone,

I want to create a hexagonal BN sheet. I tried the Nanostructure builder
plugin by using the following syntax:

graphene -lx <length> -ly <length> -type <armchair|zigzag> [-nlayers
<number of layers>] [-b <0|1>] [-a <0|1>] [-d <0|1>] [-i <0|1 -cc <blength *-ma

But the number of atom types after the creation is still showing 1 and I
think its creating a graphene sheet only. Can anyone of you please help me
creating this pproperly?

Thanks a lot,
