make sure you have the correct CRYST record in your file, then load it and in the graphics GUI under S(how) select the Cell menu item. That should do the trick.

Subject: [PyMOL] displaying unit cell in PyMol
I am trying to visualize potential heavy metal sites in PyMol. I can read in the ha.pdb output from SOLVE, but I would also like to see the boundaries of the unit cell. In O, I know you can do that with the command "sym_cell", but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it in PyMol nor I have been able to find a command anywhere on the web. Could someone tell me if this in indeed possible in PyMol and what the command is? Thanks.
