The notebook BrillouinZonePlotter.nb contains two scripts:

1) myBZ[] generates 2D plots of any cross-section of the Brillouin Zones of any 3D crystal.

2) myRed2Ext[] transformes the coordinates of a k-vector to the Extended Zone Scheme from the Reduced Zone Scheme.

The scripts are commented and you also find a short user guide in the notebook and an example too.
