You can do it with R.E.D.-III in a single multi-molecule (with or without
multi-orientation and multi-conformation) RESP run (each molecule being or not

See for instance the W-46 project which contains 10 solvent molecules fitted
together and independently in R.E.DD.B.
( W-46 which is 28 structures RESP
fit has been generated with R.E.D.-III

We also studied more complex projects. The last one involves the eight DNA and
RNA nucleosides, all fitted together (to avoid manual adaptations between the
DNA and RNA terminal fragments). This is 76 structures RESP fit...

I am working on a big HTML tutorial for R.E.D.-III and R.E.DD.B. It should be
done pretty soon now. Once this is done, I think we will be able to release a
beta version of R.E.D. III...
