[Chimera-users] Moving icosahedron to model

Is your virus surface from a density map?  If so it probably has the origin set in such a way that the center of the virus is not 0,0,0 while the center of your icosahedron outline is 0,0,0.  To remedy that you would change the origin of the map in Volume Viewer, menu Features / Coordinates set origin index to for example 128 if the map size is 256 grid points.  That is likely to put the map origin at the center of the virus particle.
