Sorry, the right word should probably be "equivalent RKMAX". As
mentioned in the original email, the RKMAX was calculated from cutoff
in EV using the scheme from userguide (sqrt(cutoff in Ryd) * size of
smallest sphere). Specific values differed between cells, smallest
spheres were around 1.5 and the RKMAX was around 8.0 (PAW cutoff of
400eV).

It was VASP and it was one of the latest versions. Will check for
specifics.
