The structures of clusters of spherical and homogeneous particles are investigated using a combination of global optimization methods. The pair wise potential between particles is integrated exactly from elementary Lennard-Jones interactions, and the use of reduced units allows us to get insight into the effects of the particle diameter. As the diameter increases, the potential becomes very sharp, and the cluster structure generally changes from icosahedral (small radius) to close-packed cubic (large radius), possibly through intermediate decahedral shapes. The results are interpreted in terms of the effective range of the potential.
