Hi Darrell,

I made these in POV-Ray. For a 3D print, I would really need to have the exact measurements of the LEGO connector piece. That would be awesome though! I was thinking of building a nucleotide in POV-Ray using these, and then go for a piece of DNA. But having a photo of a 3D printed prototype would be even better.

Wow! Do you have the CAD drawings for these? A 3D printer might work to build some prototypes…

Subject: [PyMOL] Molecular models with LEGO

Hey :)

What if you could hold the molecules you view in your hands? Ever thought of using LEGO to build molecular models? It may happen if we raise 10 000 votes for my LEGO chemistry project at http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/51273

Please consider forwarding this mail to anyone you think would be interested.
