ESES is a software to generate the accurate solvent excluded surface (SES) in the Cartesian grid. It is an open source code and can be downloaded at Weilab on GitHub

Your result is a zip file including
  • ESES.log: a log file of ESES software
  • MC_result.obj: a surface representation can be visualized by molecular sofwares such as PyMOL.
  • bounding_box.txt, grid_info.txt, intersection_info.txt: provide grid related information of the surface in the Cartesian coordinate system.
