Hi Jeff,

   Chimera does not accept Euler angles anywhere.  A Python could 
convert these to a rotation and apply it to the active marker set or 
selected markers.  The disadvantage of a script is that you would need 
to put the Euler angles into the script.  A Chimera command could be 
written to take the Euler angles and rotate the selected markers 
(atoms).  A graphical user interface, ie dialog, could be written to do 
it.  What kind of interface are you interested in?  The first is about 
15 lines of code, the second about 100, and the third about 200, all in 
Python.  Of course the Euler angle convention would have to be 
established since many different ones exist.
