This Filter is used to create an atomistic representation of microstructure from image data. The data file produced by this filter can be used for initializing the atomic coordinates in LAMMPS package.

This filter should be used in conjunction with another filter named "Insert Atoms". Given a microstructure, the "Insert Atoms" filter follows the orientation of different features to insert atoms in them and saves the configuration of atoms in a Vertex Data Container. The "Export LAMMPS Filter" uses this Vertex Data Container to create an input file for LAMMPS.
