Hi VMD users,

does anyone know if it is possible to visualize the intersection of
overlapping beads?

Or more general - calculate and visualize the overlapping parts of multiple

For example:
I have 6 Beads representations of 6 Atoms in my protein. These 6 Beads overlap
and I would like to show only the intersection, not the rest of the beads.

Since my skill in TCL are not more then the basics I am stuck...

Thanks for any hints or code snippets I can chew on.
