Dear all,

I have a pdb of a parallelepiped unit cell of a solid. I want to create a
slab of this solid by repeating the unit cell along x,y and z directions. I
can add images of the unit cell in the x,y and z directions by using the
"Graphics -> Representations -> Periodic" in vmd and by enabling periodic
images to draw. Is there any method to save the visualization as a pdb? or
what is the easiest method to create such a pdb from the pdb of the unit
cell I have?

Thank you.
Best regards,
