Hi Elaine,

Thank you for such a comprehensive email!

We had some follow up questions, however, which we were hoping you would be
able to answer. We are attempting to use Chimera to model proteins, and then
print them using a 3D printer (ZCorp software). The following file types are
compatible with the printer software:


Can Chimera save in any of these formats, that can be used to print
proteins? How would one save the session as one of these? Additionally, I
had a question about saving the session in Chimera, to preserve labels and
colored atoms. Is such a saved session a Chimera-specific file, where it
cannot be read by external programs?

Thank you for your time.
