Dear Dmitry,
There is a “findclash” command that has the same capabilities as the “Find Clashes/Contacts” tool.  Depending on the cutoffs, you can find just clashes (bad, too-close contacts) or also include longer-range favorable contacts.  You could just use the command, or use the GUI to first figure out what settings you want to use with the command.



I recommend the links above for seeing all the options and recommended values, but below are a couple of command examples. To find clashes between molecule models #1 and #3, show as red lines, and write results to Reply Log:

findclash #1 test #3 pbColor red log true

…and to find contacts between chains A and B of model #0:

findclash #0:.A test #0:.B overlap -0.5 hb 0 log true

I hope this helps,
