Hello, Chimera Users!


I am just a beginner and haven’t learned much about Chimera.


When I load water molecules in Chimera main window, (TIP3P water) they have
triangle shape.

Then, I have changed option to stick or ball&stick.
(action>atoms/bonds>stick or ball&stick)

But, they are still triangle. It looks like there is H-H covalent bond in

How can I remove this unwanted bond?

Is there any other option for molecule shape? Like licorice… 

Please let me know how can I draw water with folded line stick shape, not


Thanks in advance.


Best regards,

Hyeona Kang
