Model Attributes: MSMSModel (Molecular Surface)

Once a model has been chosen in the left side of the Model Panel, clicking the attributes... button in the right side of the panel brings up a window that shows and allows changes in model attribute values. Molecular surface models are of class MSMSModel (a specialized subtype of SurfaceModel). They can be generated using the Surface section of the Actions menu or the command surface.

The list includes the attributes of the molecular surface model and selected attributes of its component atom surfaces.

MSMSModel Attributes

Component Atom Attributes

Attributes of individual atom surfaces within a molecular surface model can be set independently. When different per-atom surfaces within the molecular surface model have different attribute values, the value is reported to be -- multiple --. If one of the other options is chosen, all per-atom surfaces in the molecular surface model will be changed accordingly.
