Chimera does not read IMOD files but perhaps I can add a file reader for
you. Have you already defined a path in IMOD along the structure you want
to measure? Or have you just segmented out the structures. If you
have segmentations but no explicitly defined 1 dimensional path then
it is not clear how to define the length.
Is the IMOD format you are using the following?
Could you send me an example file?
