17.1.4 Execution Time of the BUILD Command

The BUILD command executes very quickly taking on the order of seconds for a table with several properties. The only exception to this is the SURFACE, CONTACT and GEPOL properties. For PTI, the calculation of Richard's surface takes about 15 seconds for the explicit hydrogen model (580 atoms) on a Iris 200 series workstation. The GEPOL molecular surface takes minutes on a R4000 based Silicon Graphics workstation.
