How can we create the molecular structure (AuNPs) below?

Using a volume cube can be a solution but I couldn't achieve it properly.

Kindly help

You have to create a "grid cube" here i use the cube it self to create a plane and a line, i subdivide them by the same amount and i instance the plane on the line:

enter image description here

Then I realize the instances in order to instance each point of the "grid cube" of course those instances are spheres. Then I use a boolean (but you have to realize the spheres before) on the first cube that I have scaled a bit.

enter image description here

Edit: For the gold particles to be placed out of the surface we have to displace the particle by an amount equal to the particles radius. Then it's pretty straight forward:

If that not do the trick there is another hack.

I hope it help.
