Transform Molecule Coordinates
Transform Molecule Coordinates applies a rotation and translation
to a molecule model or
There are several ways to start
Transform Molecule Coordinates, a tool in the Movement category.
The Molecule should be chosen from the list of open molecule models.
Its transformation is specified with:
Clicking Apply transforms the molecule model
using its local coordinate system.
- Euler angles [φ θ ψ] - rotations
defined by the χ-convention,
where the first rotation is by an angle φ about the Z-axis,
the second is by an angle θ (potentially ranging from 0 to π)
about the new X-axis, and the third is by an angle ψ
about the new Z-axis.
- Shift [X Y Z] - translations along X, Y, and Z
