Thank you for your response. It's been very useful.
Yes, I am looking for something similar to MolSurfer's output: 2D
projections of interface surfaces. The only problem I see with MolSurfer
is that I have not been able to find a way to download the images of the
2D projections yet.
Do you think those type of 2D projections could be done with Chimera? I
am thinking, for instance, in generating the 2D projections from the
vertex coordinates of the surface generated with Chimera intersurf
command. Does it seem a good idea?
Thank you very much,
