I have a 3d system I visualize in pymol. I'm using the simple xyz file format where I give pymol the name of the molecule and it's x,y,z coordinates.

name    x    y    z

I now want to draw some rods the rods connect two points, one on the y=0 plain and the other on the y=L plain. L is the size of my system in the y direction. How can I achieve this?

Note that I control the input file I give to pymol and I can add points to the file.

This is not what I need. For two reasons: 1. I can't control the radius of the line. 2: The number that appear.
