[Chimera-users] Cubic vop zone boxes

Hi Chimera team and users,

I am cutting out multiple sub-volumes from a much larger volume (#0) with fitted PDB co-ordinates (#1-n) using a script, but having trouble making the final sub-volumes cubic. At present I am using cutting out sub-volumes using '$ vop zone #0 #1 10 minimalBounds true’ to make the sub-volume more manageable.

I am aware of the previous questions posted at http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/pipermail/chimera-users/2015-April/010942.html for reducing a volume size and the trick at http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/pipermail/chimera-users/2011-April/006208.html for expanding a volume.

Is there however a way to make the volume cubic at the vop zone stage or a one liner command to expand a box after cutting with minimalBounds so that this can be efficiently scripted?

Thanks for your help!
