This is a common problem in Chimera.  Some explanation and all of our ideas for possible solutions are in this page (no use for me just to repeat that information here):


#3 and #4 in that page will always work because they use different methods instead of the standard molecular surface calculation.

P.S. better to send chimera questions to chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu, unless including private data
