Hi Matt,
	I don’t know that you need to go through the Model Panel per se, you could just go through Chimera’s open models list:


Each model in the list has:

id			ID number
subid		Sub-ID number (None if it doesn’t have a sub-ID)
name		Name
openedAs	If it came from a file, a 4-tuple of stuff you mostly don’t care about, but the first element is the file name

Since some models don’t come from files (e.g. on-the-fly VRML models), you may want to use the model panel’s “inputPath” function to always get a usable/readable string:

from ModelPanel import inputPath
path = inputPath(model)
