# How do I make PDB 1HIG's data usable for producing ball-and-stick models?

PDB: 1HIG, when opened using Accelrys DS Visualizer, Avogadro and Jmol produces a series of dots in space and cannot be displayed as 3D ball and stick models. Is there any way to overcome this problem?

This is the output from Accelrys DS Visualizer 4.0:

This is the output of Avogadro:

This is the output of Jmol:

This specific PDB file only contains the coordinates of all the $\ce{C_{\alpha}}$ atoms of the protein. It simply does not contain enough information to display an actual 3D structure of the protein.
