I don't even know a Wulff net is. But based on its appearance, I'm guessing it's
some sort of mapping between HKL indices and a sphere. Maybe it's a clue to help
me convert HKL values to planes...

What's your camera aspect there? The crystal looks stretched vertically.

It is a cool program, I just wish I could figure out my HKL issues so I can do
more with it. (My previous searches didn't turn up much useful info, or maybe I
wasn't comprehending what I saw...)
