You're only building one loop model. I'd recommend building several, so
that you can sample the conformational space more effectively. This also
allows for the possibility that some of the models are not produced due
to optimizer failure, as you have discovered.

Most likely the loop conformation is distorted in such a way that the
optimizer cannot recover. In the case of GB/SA (used by dope_loopmodel)
this may result in very large forces, thereby causing very distorted
models. The older loopmodel class is more stable because it does not use

Otherwise, it looks like what you are doing is fine.
