Chimera Commands Index

sop operation arguments options

The sop command edits a surface model to create a new surface model. See also: scolor, setattr, volume (surface and mesh options), surface attributes

Currently there is one operation, finerMesh.

Operation keywords and their sub-keywords described below can be truncated to unique strings, and their case does not matter.

sop finerMesh  surf-model  spacing d  general-options

Subdivide the surface mesh to achieve the specified vertex spacing d. The surf-model argument can be a model number or range of model numbers preceded by #, or simply # to indicate all applicable surfaces. If the input surface already has a finer mesh than what is specified, it will simply be duplicated.
