Access to MXCuBE3

MXCuBE3 is currently installed on ID29 and ID23-2. To start it go to Start on the left screen and start the MXCuBE3-server and MXCuBE3. A preliminary version of the MXCuBE3 manual is available.

The MXCuBE3 portal is https://mxcube3.esrf.fr

Remote Access with MXCuBE3

Since MXCuBE3 is a web application it does not require anymore NX-Client to access the beamline. Point the browser on your PC to https://mxcube3.esrf.fr

Click on GET STARTED and select the beamline (you can also access directly the beamline by using the URL https://id29.mxcube3.esrf.fr or https://id232.mxcube3.esrf.fr)

To visualise diffraction images you can use either EXI (https://exi.esrf.fr) or adxv via NX-Client.

Two new icons are available in NX-Client for MXCuBE3 (MX3) experiments. These start ADXV, Firefox (to access Hutch cameras), idappli (Front End application) but not MXCuBE
