Could anybody please help with voro++ cause i am new to this software?My problem is how can i find the coordination number of an atom ,cause i checked it for a bcc lattice and it gave me 24 for all atoms which is correct cause the wigner-seitz polyhedron of bcc is a truncated octahedron with indeed 24 vertices. But what if i don't know the initial lattice and i want the coordination number for example for bcc is 8?Does anynody knows the option to do this???

Thanks in advance
