You could try Segment Map followed by Fit to Segments (both in the Tools -> Volume Data menu). More details and a tutorial here if needed:

Usually I have to move the model around to find a more or less good fit manually, otherwise Chimera does not find anything. I also tried by first making a molmap followed by something like 'fitmap #0 #1 resolution 4'. I am convinced that there is a better way of doing this but so far I was unable to find it. Can anybody please give me a quick hint!
