Why does Chem3D minimize nitrogen dioxide (radical) so badly?

    And regarding nitrite, which is ONO-

    Why doesn't it show it to me as having a resonance structure? How would I tell Chem3D to build it with a resonance structure instead of O=N-O-

    The bond angle on Nitrite is supposedly around 115° (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrite#Structure)

    Minimizing with Chem3D gives me 121°
