Hi Ye -

The solvent excluded surface is the default surface representation in PyMOL.  (Solvent accessible surface can also be generated using `set surface_solvent, on`.)  View the surface with:

show surface, myobj

You can modify van der Waals radii like this:

alter myobj, vdw=vdw*1.2

You can also a selection or `all` instead of your object name.

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how to generate the solvent exclusive surface with
scaled (e.g. 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, etc) VDW radii for protein?
I want to visualize the electrostatic potential on these surfaces, in
order to get an idea how the potential changes from the protein to its

Thank you in advance.
