This question has also been asked on Biostars

The position that I have to visualize is in the 2700 position and this position exists in two ranges in https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q12802#family_and_domains the first range is Interaction with ESR1 and the second region is disordered, the first question is which range I should be based on? and the second is Why intrinsically disordered protein(IDP) can't be visualized in 3D?

Asking how to visualise the disordered region of a protein is a bit like asking how to visualise the location of an electron.

An intrinsically disordered protein, by definition, has regions that are disordered. In other words, their location is variable under observation, so they cannot be precisely placed in a 3D model.
