isomesh creates a mesh isosurface object from a map object.

Contents

USAGE

isomesh name, map, level [,(selection) [,buffer [,state [,carve ]]]] 

Examples

# load the map
load mymap.xplor, themap
# view the isomesh map
isomesh themapobject, themap, 2.0, site, carve=1.6
Output from the 2nd example
# create fake map for demo
load $TUT/1hpv.pdb
 
# set b and q for all atoms
alter all, b=10
alter all, q=1
 
# make a new map
map_new fake_map, gaussian, 0.5, all
 
# carved brick
isomesh carved, fake_map, 1.0, resi 200, carve=2.1
 
color marine, carved
 
# normal brick
isomesh normal, fake_map, 1.0, resi 200, 2.1
 
orient resi 200

NOTES

USAGE

If the mesh object already exists, then the new mesh will be appended onto the object as a new state (unless you indicate a state).

MAP AROUND THE CENTER

You can create mesh around the center of the view by specifying "center" as the selection argument.

isomesh normal, fake_map, 1.0, center

MAP OUTSIDE THE CALCULATED AREA

When map_auto_expand_sym is ON, you can create mesh beyond the precalculated volume. In this case, symmetry information (lattice constants, space group) of the model specified in the selection argument if available, or (new in 1.7) from the map object.
