Hello

I have my damfilt.pdb file and I uploaded it to Pymol. How can I increase the diameter of the protein's spheres and buffers's spheres, in order to obtain a full clean surface of the envelope?

Thank you

To modify the size of displayed spheres, you can use the 'set sphere_scale' in the pymol command line, for example:

show spheres
set sphere_scale, 1.5
set sphere_scale, 3.0

you can play around with the number until you get the desired results.

HTH,

My previous post referred to changing the size of displayed spheres, but if you want to modify the surface representation, you should change the solvent_radius parameter:

set solvent_radius, 1.8
If the surface does not change correspondingly, use:
rebuild
A larger solvent_radius would show a smoother surface.
