Most glycoproteins take a while to build and minimize, especially on
the current site. But, if it's really taking a long time, there might
be a problem with the builder. It doesn't work well with all pdb

I'm sure there are other ways to build the coordinates using other
software, but I don't know them.

Here are two things to try. Try either, both or neither, as it suits you.

1. Write me off-list or at with your pdb file. I
can see if our site is having trouble with the file for some reason.

2. Try our development site ( There's a glycoprotein
builder there, too, and it is probably a lot faster and more robust
for the things it does. Please just be aware that the site is still
in development. The things that work should work properly, but some
functionality is missing. For example, you can't add counter-ions
yet. You should be able to build a glycoprotein, though. Of course,
always check your files carefully.
