[Chimera-users] how to create surface from volume tracer path

Hi Jinghua,

  The volume tracer capability to stitch loops drawn in parallel planes 
to form tube surfaces uses some strange heuristics that don't always 
produce a good result.  I'd have to see the case where you have trouble 
to understand it.  I just tried making a tube, see attached photo, and 
it worked ok in a Chimera daily build from a few days ago.

  I am at a workshop until the middle of next week so may not reply to 
email for a while.
