Do you want to plot the band structure?
The answer might be the Xcrysden. ( http://www.xcrysden.org/
<http://www.xcrysden.org/>) It can help you build the k point path to
calculate the bands.
The procedure to achiev it is: 1) Run a SCF calculation and make sure the
electronic properties are converged. 2) Run a NSCF restarting from the SCF
you made and use the k point path suggested by Xcrysden.


Do you want to know the number o K points generated by the Monkhorst-Pack?
Check the Monkhorst pack original article:
