[Chimera-users] Bouding box dimensions

Hello Thomas,

Thank you very much for your help on this.

After opening a PDB file, I would like first to display the bounding box 
of the macromolecule studied.

Then, I wish to know the dimensions of the bounding box along its x,y 
and z axis (in nm or angstrom).

How can I do that ?

Is the bounding box optimal (i.e. the smallest bounding box surrounding 
the macromolecule) or defined by a reference frame in the PDB file ?

My best regards,
