It acts on the section of cartoon-represented helices. When turned off, the section is an ellipsoid. When turned on, the section is a line with circles on each end. The resulting helices are pretty slick ribbons with tubular edges à la MolScript.

Overview

This setting sets the style in which cartoon helices are rendered. The default is a helix with an ellipsoid cross section. Fancy mode helices are ribbons with tubular edges à la MolScript. Cylindicial mode renders helices as solid cylinders.

Syntax

To turn on Fancy Helices:

set cartoon_fancy_helices, 1

To turn on Cylindrical Helices:

set cartoon_cylindrical_helices, 1

To return to default helices:

set cartoon_fancy_helices, 0
set cartoon_cylindrical_helices, 0

Result

Change size of default cartoon helix

To change the size of the cartoon helices when not in the fancy helix mode you change the dimensions of the oval that represents the cross section of the default cartoon representation.

set cartoon_oval_length , 0.8 # default is 1.20

and
