Electron density maps in protein crystallography are typically presented as "wireframe" or "chickenwire". Whilst this method has been enormously successful for interactive atomic model building, it is not ideal for presentation. In particular, chickenwire views often appear cluttered and adequate illusion of depth only is achieved with stereo-pair presentation.

CONSCRIPT allows protein electron density isosurfaces to be rendered in triangulated form suitable for input into the popular MOLSCRIPT and Raster3d packages. This method of display leads to more easily interpretable pictures and can dispense with the need for stereo-pair presentation.
