As part of some research I am doing, I want to do a head-to-head comparison of software for generating 3D atomic coordinates for molecules. Is there a list anywhere of chemical software that does this?
I was able to settle on the following constraints: freely available, or at least free for academic users; can be run on the command line (either Windows or *nix); and, can handle small to medium-sized molecules (I.e. I am not expecting the software to handle oligopeptides or other sizable biomolecules).
The input could be any of 1. a MOL file without 3D information; or 2. line notation like SMILES or InChI. I was envisioning doing tests for at least those formats, unless I am missing anything.
If there is no such list, would you be able to recommend any software for this task?
I am already using OpenBabel and RDKit to generate coordinates, so I got the idea to look for other software to compare with it.
(Survey papers that have previously done comparisons of this sort would also be welcome and appreciated, so that I can see what hasn't already been covered by previous researchers.)
