Yes it is quite easy but you should think carefully about what and average
structure will tell you. Refer to the following tutorial
) section 6.6 for details on how to do it.

Refer to the following tutorial:
m section 6.1.2 for a cautionary tale on the usefulness of average cartesian
structures and why lowest energy structures and cluster analysis are usually
much more informative.

All the best
