MidasPlus is the UCSF molecular graphics program. All aspects of secondary and tertiary structure can be displayed. MSG users may be interested to know that SMALL amounts of electron density can be displayed and rendered.

To use Midas, add the following to your .cshrc:

set path=( $path /public/midas/bin )
setenv MIDASRC ~/.midasrcoptional

The command 'midas -fname.pdb' brings up the program in full-screen mode with the molecule of your choice.

See the documentation for further details, of which there are many!
