If you are completely stuck, you can try this recipe

Snow Flea is 75% over, but it's pretty hard and maybe some of you have given up. I knew what I wanted to make but even knowing that I still couldn't do it because I couldn't keep track of which atoms bonded; I lose them every time I moved the puzzle.

After lining up all the sidechains, part of my puzzle seemed bonded correctly. Extending those bonds to adjacent strands, like sheets, determined where all the other bonds should go. This script bands all the bonding atoms together. It also bands the cysteine bridges.

As a bonus, I found that the bands made the glycines flip over really quickly, unlike manual banding or my glycine flipper recipe.

The script has one option: if you comment out the band length, it will set the band to the current distance, effectively locking the atoms in place. This will help the structure survive rebuilds.

If you don't want to know what (I think) the puzzle looks like don't run this script!

I hope none of you think I'm making the puzzle too easy (and making you rank down) but this was a pretty hard puzzle.
