[Chimera-users] imposing symmetry

Hi Andy,

   If your C8 axis of symmetry is the z axis and (0,0,0) lies on the 
axis then the attached Python script will make the 8 copies.  You have 
to edit the script to use the correct PDB file name.  Then open it with 
File / Open....

   I had to make this a Python script instead of a Chimera command 
script because there is no Chimera command to set the center of rotation 
to a specific point.
