Software review: producing two dimensional diagrams of membrane proteins

E. coli LamB, presented using TMRPres2D. Not that the cytoplasmic/extracellular labels are incorrect, and should say extracellular/periplasmic.

I recently needed to make a simple, two dimensional figure of a beta-barrel membrane protein. I went hunting for programs that might take a sequence and/or structure and produce a pretty looking diagram to save me constructing everything by hand. Here are two I found and tried.
