How to plot defects (dislocations and disclinations) in crystals?

How to plot dislocations and disclinations in crystals? like the pictures blow (from Chaikin and Lubensky’s book Principles of condensed matter physics).
I need to draw several pics of this type. Any help would be appreciated!


What you really need is a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) application. Not only can the FEA application solve your problem and visualize it. It allows you to somewhat easily solve an arbitrary complex problem for you with some effort.

enter image description here

Image 1: Quick test in Creo, with default meshing. Could be split to your desired grid for more accurate representation.

There are a several free FEA applications or you can use a commercial one (sky is the limit as far as fea application prices go).
