IMD is a computer simulation package designed for large-scale simulation studies in materials sciences. IMD can be run with a large number of effective many-body interactions which can be produced from ab-initio calculations. This report is intended to give an overview of the following topics: how to obtain IMD, the design of IMD, capabilities of IMD with special focus on laser ablation, and interaction of IMD with other codes.
