Within a given residue, all atom names must be unique. So you might think
if you can somehow divide the graphite into residues, so that you could re-use
atom names.

Alternatively, you will have to be creative in getting unique atom names.
But there may be an upper limit on the size of an individual residue; I'm
not sure about that.

Amber was not designed for this sort of problem, so you will have to be
patient and try various things.

....good luck...dac
