[Chimera-users] how to get translation and rotation vectors for move and turn commands

I have the same model loaded in Chimera twice. One model has been moved 
to a different position and rotated manually using mouse.

How can I get x,y,z coordinates for the centers of the to models to 
calculate x,y,z axis definition compatible with the move command? And 
how to get rotation information for turn command?

I tried with cofr command but it seems to give coordinates in different 
reference frame. I would like to avoid using savepos/reset/fly commands 
in this case. Python solution would be fine.

Thanks in advance for your help,
