Re: [AMBER] Regarding rigid bond

Using belly for many molecules will not only keep them internally rigid,
but their relative orientations will also be stuck. I would not do that.

A suggestion is to 'shake' all bonds as carlos said, by I would try ot
use a large bond constant for the intermolecular bond of the molecules
you want rigid.

Do not overdue it, or otherwise the integrator will sufer.
