Hi Andrew,
It is free for noncommercial use.  Companies can also use Chimera, but subject to a commercial license.


… the above includes a link to e-mail chimera at cgl.ucsf.edu to ask about licensing terms.  I could forward this message to that address as well, but I think it depends on the number of users and some other information.  You may want to consider number of users/locations and then send email to that address.

I’m not involved in the commercial licensing process, otherwise I’d be more directly helpful!
Best regards,
Elaine C. Meng, Ph.D.

Would this be allowed, or do we need to obtain a licence for commercial use? We have been looking throughout the web for the past few days and your program is the only way we have come across to convert .map to .obj.
