[Chimera-users] Visualizing Electrostatic Potential of *.grd format?

Dear All,

I would like to ask you a question regarding the visualization of 
electrostatic potential on msms. For this purpose, of course, I need a 
readable format for Potential Map.
In the past I used to work with DelPhi for potential calculations and 
then visualize the outputted *.14 file by Chimera.
Today I calculate potentials by using UHBD program, while output files 
are saved in /phi/ format with .grd extension (could be written either 
in binary or ascii form).
Unfortunately, the Chimera doesn't recognize this format.

Dear Chimera users, do you know the way to convert the *.grd files to 
the *.phi ones readable by Chimera, or any other trick?
I can't recalculate the potentials by DelPhiController, because I have 
only one dat-file for both radii sizes and charges (it also doesn't work 
in the simple way).

I'd very appreciate any help of yours!

Yours sincerely,
