Display 3D structures in iBabel

 

A minor update to iBabel Currently when you use the Viewer tab to display molecules only a 2D display is available as shown below.

2Dview

However, now there are a couple of radio buttons below the image that can be used to choose either a 2D viewer or 3D viewer, this should be particularly useful when looking at the conformation of docked ligands. It should be noted that this does not actually generate a 3D structure it merely displays the input file using a 3D viewer 3Dmol.js if the file only contains 2D coordinates a 2D structure will be displayed.
