Can I draw picture in compartment format in NEURON?

Dear NEURON

From http://neuromorpho.org/neuroMorpho/index.jsp
I can download the data of a neuron and draw its morphology. Can I draw picture in compartment format in NEURON?

I am not sure what you mean by compartment format? If you mean just to display the cell in NEURON, first, import the cell in to NEURON by starting NEURON and using
NEURON Main Menu - > Tools -> Miscellaneous -> Import3D

Import3d_GUI[0] - choose a file (click checkbox) -> browse and select a swc file from NeuroMorpho's archive

Click Export -> Instantiate

NEURON Main Menu -> Graph -> Shape Plot

Shape Plot -> right click pop-up menu -> select Shape-Style -> Show Diam
Shape Plot -> right click pop-up menu -> select View -> Zoom In/Out
left mouse button dragging on Shape Plot Zooms In/Out.
middle mouse button dragging lets you pan the figure

The order can dispaly the diameter of the dendrite.
The compartment format means the graph display all the compartment of cell.

ps. Is there any plan for the weekly course of NEURON in China? GUANGZHOU IS A CITY YOU CAN CONSIDER?
