Hi Hernando,
The short answer is no, but we updated the EDS fetch to use PDBe, so I think you just need to get a newer Chimera (release 1.12 or newer).  Just now I was able to fetch the data used in that tutorial, command

open edsID:2fma

Chimera 1.12 release notes

I hope this helps,

The tutorial (https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/tutorials/density.html)   suggest fetching the density map from the Electron Density Server, but this server is no longer available.
