[Chimera-users] surfaces and

I have been working with a very large structure of many subunits, the E.Coli
Ribosome particle with the Signal Recognition Particle attached (PDB 2J28)

I was able to create an image of the SRP part of the complex. I selected
that subunit. And was able to hide all the other subunits. So with the
subunit selected I tried to visualize only that image as a surface. Wouldn't
let me, getting an error message that it was too large and I should somehow
split it.  Don't know how to do that. I know the whole dataset is very
large, but the SRP portion is only 400 amino acids.

A work around would be if I could somehow select the SRP subunit and have it
as a dataset to reload as that subunit alone. Then not so big.  Don't know
how to do that either.

Your suggestions. I couldn't find anything in the tutorials that might help.

I was able to show the surface of another PDB file that was much smaller.
