    Thanks for your help! I've been making progress after that bottleneck. I plan to test all aspects of the Collada exporting/importing.

    Still very much looking forward to the engine's potential.

    Oh, I've got PDB reader. It's great for small stick-and-ball molecules, but not really big ones. I never had it output ribbons for me, so maybe I'm missing an option in the settings.
