As I mentioned previously, it is often helpful to check a database (i.e.
the ICSD) for a standardised form of the crystal structure.
As a courtesy, I have done that for you for this structure and attached a
pdf. You would need to enter the structural
information manually in ATOMS rather than by importing a cif file.

Looking at the notes, the transformation from B11b to Cc is not so

You should check with your institution to see if they have access to this
(ICSD) resource.
