[modeller_usage] question about mutate_model

 I would like to use the script mutate_model to evaluate different conformations of the same mutant side chain
inserted in a protein. Therefore I used the script "mutate model" as suggested in the Wiki section, and
repeated the procedure 5 times, expecting to obtain 5 different conformations of the mutant side chain.
Instead, I obtained 5 identical proteins with side chains perfectly superimposable between each others. How
can I manage myself in order to obtain 5 different models of the same mutation? Moreover, this is probably a
naive question, but since repeated MD cycles generally do not produce identical results, why this protocol did
not work in such a way?
Many thanks and best regards
