I don't know about the script or the wizard (yet), but I did try the sculpting demo in the Demo menu. You can then just drag atoms by left-clicking them while holding down the control key. The dragged atom moves, everything it is connected to is dragged along, and the structure tries to minimize its energy. Great fun! -- Lieven Buts Department of Ultrastructure Brussels Free University
