Subject: AMBER: Using antechamber without AMBER program

Dear staffs,

I'm completely new to AMBER and our lab doesn't have AMBER program yet. I want
to use AMBER force fields to do simulation of small molecules, using CHARMM or
NAMD software. I want to use antechamber to generate force fields for small
molecules such as drugs, solvents, excipients and wondering if I can just use
antechamber program to do that. Do I need to buy AMBER software if I want to
just generate force fields for small molecules? Your suggestions would be
greatly appreciated.

If I need to buy AMBER, I'll try to convince my adviser to buy one.

Thank you very much for your help.
