In that case, I think you want to change the "vertex density" surface
parameter mentioned in the previous message. That uses a greater
number of points and thus triangles in the surface, leading to a
smoother appearance. However, be aware that doing this may decrease
the interactivity (slow down responses to movements with the mouse)
depending on your computer, so you may need to experiment a little to
find a happy medium. Actually the picture you sent is of a rather
small molecule, so I don't think there will be any slowdown. If you
were showing a huge protein or several proteins it would be more likely.
