Overview

PyMOL can convert to formats (vrml2 and idtf) that can be converted to a 3D PDF (will not work with most PDF browser plugins; must be downloaded and viewed with certain viewers liked Adobe Acrobat 9.2+).

Note. The figure is only represented in cartoon format. No sticks yet...

Requirements

Get IDFT file from PyMOL

save pymol.idtf, *

PyMOL will print a line that looks like:

 3Daac=20.0, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0 0 1, 3Droo=62.45, 3Dcoo=0 0 -62.45

copy this line into the pymol.tex file overwriting the same line in the file.

Windows - Convert the IDTF to U3D

Quick

  1. Download Universal 3D Sample Software - u3d converter - IDTF to U3D, and extract to Desktop
  2. Navigate to the bin folder: \Desktop\U3D_A_061228_5\Bin\Win32\Release
  3. Copy pymol.idtf in here.
  4. Hold shift key, right click in folder, click Open command window here.

Then copy this inot command window:

IDTFConverter -input pymol.idtf -output pymol.u3d

Copy the pymol.u3d into your LaTeX folder

General

  1. Download Universal 3D Sample Software - u3d converter - IDTF to U3D, and extract to C:\Program Files (x86)\U3D_A_061228_5
  2. Make a IDTF2U3D.bat and afterwards copy to C:\Windows.
@echo off
rem -- Run IDTFConverter --
set IDTF_EXE_DIR=C:\Program Files (x86)\U3D_A_061228_5\Bin\Win32\Release
 
if exist "%IDTF_EXE_DIR%\IDTFConverter.exe" goto haveProg
echo "%IDTF_EXE_DIR%\IDTFConverter.exe" not found
goto eof
 
:haveProg
if .%1==. goto noarg
 
"%IDTF_EXE_DIR%\IDTFConverter.exe" -input %1 -output %~n1.u3d 
goto eof
 
:noarg
echo no arguments given.
echo IDTF2U3D pymol.idtf
 
:eof
echo Done
  1. Navigate to pymol.idtf. Right click, Open with..., Browse to: C:\Windows and select IDTF2U3D.bat

Copy the pymol.u3d into your LaTeX folder

Linux install - Convert the IDTF to U3D

cd ~/Downloads/ ;
wget http://www2.iaas.msu.ru/tmp/u3d/u3d-1.4.3.tar.gz ;
tar -xzf u3d-1.4.3.tar.gz ;
cd u3d-1.4.3 ;
cmake . ;
make ;
chmod g+wx . ;
set IDDIR=$PWD ;
 
cat > IDTF2U3D << EOF
#!/bin/tcsh
set FOLD=\$PWD
set IN=\$PWD/\$1
cp -f \$IN $IDDIR
cd $IDDIR
./IDTFConverter -input \$1 -output \$1:r:t.u3d
cp -f \$1:r:t.u3d \$FOLD/
EOF
 
chmod +x IDTF2U3D
 
ln -s $PWD/IDTF2U3D ~/bin/IDTF2U3D

Then write in terminal

IDTF2U3D pymol.idtf
