Hi Sabuj,

  There is no Chimera user inteface to set the unit cell outline box
color or line thickness.  You could edit the Python code


to get different color and thickness.  Use any text editor and change
line 186 from

    color = (1,1,1)                     # white


    color = (.5,.2,.8)                  # outline color, (red,green,blue)

To change the line thickness add after line 399


the additional line

    group.line_thickness = 3		# In screen pixels.

I've added to our requested feature list and item to creat a user interface
in the "Unit Cell" dialog to make these settings.
