[Chimera-users] Saving a multiscale model in VRML

Our publications group has a new device that they call a 3D printer.
It can make solid models from a data file.  They have made models
from pdb files as ball-and-stick, and I saw one surface rendered model. They 
tell me that the input is in VRML.  So, I am wondering how to make
a VRML file from a session in Chimera where Multiscale Model tool is used
to make a surface rendering of a complex model...several proteins.  My 
model is not as complex as the virus examples for multiscale models,
but the ability to make different resolution surfaces is a powerful 
aid.  I would like to try and 'print' a 3D model of this surface rendered

Any help in out to output the VRML file for the printer?>
