Hello Everyone:

I would like to use the vmd graphics primitives to construct a stilized
version of a cyclodextrin molecule using vmd primitives. Please refer to

for a few examples.

Then, I want to superimpose a molecular model beta-CD on top of this
stilized version. VMD would be great for this!

Basically, cyclodextrin molecules are truncated hollow cones constructed
from sucrose moities. I am particularly interested in perspective views
and shading. Please see the examples.

I really appreciate any help you are willing to provide.

Warm regards,
