Abstract: We present super star cluster (SSC) models in infrared generated by MontAGN (Monte Carlo for Active Galactic Nuclei), a 3-dimensional radiative transfer code written in Python 2.7. The code propagates photons in form of packets taking into account of scattering, absorption, re-emission, temperature update and polarisation. Hierarchically clumpy dust envelopes containing silicate, parallel and perpendicular graphite grains, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with varying parameters are considered in our models. MontAGN is capable of constructing spectral energy distributions (SEDs), maps and 3D visualisations from the output. We compare our results with Whelan et al. 2011 and show that the code has successfully reproduced major features, although several upgrades and improvements are still needed in the future.
