This code has been put under version control in the project Pymol-script-repo


This script will create an object for any Wavefront(.OBJ) mesh file. This is a way to extend the number of objects you can use. Also, you have more control over the coloring, transformations, etc than the CGOs. Although there are a number of these obj files on the web, you can also easily created them with open source tools (OpenFX, Crossroads3D). It takes literally, 2 min to get an object created and then loaded into pymol. Simply open OpenFX Designer, click File->Insert->Model, then choose any of the models (or create your own of course!), then export it as .3ds file. Then open the .3ds file from Crossroads3D and export as Wavefront OBJ.

  • createWFMesh - create a mesh object from Wavefront (*.obj) formated file
