You can show cones, arrows, boxes, and a variety of simple geometric
shapes by opening a BILD format file in Chimera: BILD format. It may
be a little awkward having a script write a temporary file, so instead
you can use a StringIO object, as described here: [Chimera-users] BILD
You can also use the 'shape' command to draw spheres, cylinders, and
icosahedrons. You can run any Chimera command from Python by using
Chimera's 'runCommand' function, e.g.:
from chimera import runCommand
runCommand("shape sphere center ligand color dodger blue radius 25")
Feel free to ask more questions!
