The application of a new technique for zeolite framework structure solution is described that exhaustively enumerates every possible topology consistent with known unit-cell dimensions and space-group symmetry. It is shown that computer-generated on-line databases of hypothetical crystal structures can radically augment structure building in the pre-refinement stage.
