[Chimera-users] Making copies of an atomic structure and fit in the map

I still don't know what information is in your PDB (or mmCIF) file or in your map file, so it's still not possible to give you an exact command. Although you personally know that the map is C6, the map file probably doesn't have this annotation inside the file.
If your map is #0 and atomic structure is #1 here are some possible commands to try but I really don't know if they will work.
measure symmetry #0
Hopefully this would assign C6 symmetry to your map, if it can be recognized:
If the above worked, then maybe
sym #1 group #0
If trying to put the symmetry on the map first doesn't work, then maybe
sym #1 group C6 [**other options needed to give symmetry axis and symmetry center**]
It can be difficult to figure out the axis and center and specify those in the command, which is why I suggested trying to detect it automatically for the map first. I don't know what the center and axis would be, it depends on your data. The format of specifying them is described in the "sym" help
I hope this helps,
