= Overview =

This script will create a CGO circle with the origin at the specified X,Y,Z coordinates. Also, you can specify the radius and the colors. See the examples.

If you want to draw a circle around an object or selection, use circleSelection. If you want pure flexibility over your circle then use cgoCircle.

There are two functions here:


— creates a CGO circle at some user-specified location


—creates a circle around the named object or selection.

import pymol
from pymol.cgo import *
