By default, the surface and mesh commands ignore all atoms in HETATM records
in a PDB file. You can change that with:
set surface_mode, 1
set mesh_mode, 1
That means, though, that *all* hetatm atoms will have a surface drawn. If you
want to draw a surface for your oligosaccharide chains alone, then you can
copy them to a separate object and set the surface_mode flag just for that
set surface_mode, 0
create saccharide, object & <selection>
(fill in your residue selection for <selection>)
set surface_mode, 1, saccharide
Hope that helps,
