sp3d2 and sp3d are really just combinations of sp2 or p orbitals and lobes, right? So it's the same thing. Just direct them where you want them -- or is that the problem, you haven't figured out how to direct the lobes where you want them? That may not be well documented...

Hi Bob,

I'm writing up a short tutorial on orbital drawing, as I want to
visualize the kind of thing I represent in my ODK project [0]... Up to
sp3 everything is fine, but I was hoping you could also add sp3d and
sp3d2 hybridizations, see the nice slides at [1], and slides 21-22 in
particular. Please consider it as feature request :)

Grtz from Boston,
