Do you mean another published paper rather than published one in Methods Journal? Another one which explains the algorithm?

Yes, that's its purpose. There is a published paper about its algorithm; I
would suggest you read and understand it.

The value of 5 is a grid spacing for the InflateGRO APL measurement. The
deletion radius is zero, which is correct for shrinking because you don't want
to continue deleting lipids, or you will have no membrane left!

If these concepts are not intuitive, you should absolutely stop and read the
paper for InflateGRO and watch the demonstration video that is posted online.
