You did not say what you did. If using the save PDB dialog, you have to choose the model in the dialog as well as the selected-only option if you’ve used the mouse to select only the box part of the model in the window.
Click Help on dialogs when you are using them and you get an error, before asking on the list.

That will also make the volume isosurface triangles into atoms, but you can select just the box part and write selected-only as a PDB file. E.g. if the volume model is #4, command:

In order to do that I need the dimensions of both mrc density maps or there eight greatest corners. How would I go about doing this; that is, getting the 8 corners of the mrc density maps? Is there a command to help this process?
