I recently came across a preprint ( DOI, PDF link ) that has some figures of protein structures in a style that I have not seen before. To me it appears easier on the eyes and less noisy than the more traditional 3D models with lighting that "reflects" on a glossy surface. I am interested in creating similar plots of my own protein structures.

Does anyone recognise this style / know how to generate these plots from a PDB file or similar?
