Thanks for your clarifications. I still couldn't follow how I can calculate
the scaling factor. As I wrote earlier, I ran NPT simulation for equilibration.
Now to start the NVT production run, I need to know the AVERAGE LENGTHS
(a, b, c) of the triclinic box vectors so that I can generate the
triclinic box with the
help of the corresponding angles (88.30, 107.40, 112.20) using the
Now I understand that the box-x, box-y, and box-z represents the diagonal
elements of triangular matrix and the average volume of my triclinic box
is the product of these diagonal elements. However, as I understand the
command "editconf" requires the length of the box vectors and the three angles
to create a triclinic box.
I would greatly appreciate if you could please let me know the command(s) that
I would require to use to achieve my goal.

These you had in the log file as you showed in your mail. Note that
you use isotropic pressure coupling, so you just need to calculate a
scaling factor, which you can give to editconf to change your system
to match the average box size.
