The data contained in this repository include output of the dust evolution code of Birnstiel et al. 2010 and a RADMC-3D setup based upon the dust data. To run the entire notebook yourself, you need the radmc3d executable in your path, or you change images_done = False to True, in which case the images are not recalculated on the fly, but the pre-calculated images contained in the repository are used.
