  If you haven't received any other suggestions yet, I thought I'd
comment very briefly.

A conceptually straightforward approach to do this might be to
compute an expanded molecular surface mesh (padding out the probe radius
significantly) on which to place particles, followed by the use a simple
monte carlo approach to pushing the particles around to achieve perfectly
uniform spacing. Perhaps someone has an existing tool/code to suggest, but
I don't know of one personally.
