Hi Jeff,

  The Chimera IMOD model file reader reads through all the data in the 
IMOD file but ignores everything except the meshes.  Here is the file 
format specification I used to write the code


The Chimera Python code is in the IMOD directory obtained from the 
Chimera experimental features web page


in files


That code could be improved to display the contour data although Chimera 
does not have a high efficiency rendering of 1-dimensional curves.  
Using path tracer markers and links (equivalent to atoms and bonds) 
would consume alot of memory (a few kbytes per point).
