3D Molecules Edit & Test 1.0 - New Chemistry App for Mac OS X

February 17, 2015 in Educational (E)

[prMac.com] Yoshkar-Ola, Russian Federation - Virtual Space OOO today is proud to announce the release of 3D Molecules Edit & Test 1.0, their new chemistry app for Mac OS X. This application allows anyone to build and manipulate 3D molecular models of organic and inorganic compounds. The key features of "3D Molecules Edit & Test" are 3D printing support and the 'Test yourself' mode that allows students to check their knowledge of the 3D structure of molecules. This is a valuable tool for chemistry students when learning about molecular bonding and orbitals with the aid of 3D visualization. The app is great for any high school or college student in chemistry courses.

Are you looking for apps that allow students to construct molecules with 3D visualization? "3D Molecules Edit & Test" is a very effective app for this purpose as it allows organic and inorganic molecular structures to be built with single, double and triple bonds, as well as cyclic compounds. The molecules can be visualized in 3D using stick, ball and stick and space-filling (CPK) models. Important information about the molecule can be displayed. For example, it is possible to visualize the atomic orbitals, see electronic effects using arrows and identify bond lengths and element symbols.

The key feature of "3D Molecules Edit & Test" full version is 'Test yourself' mode. It allows learners to check their knowledge of chemistry and chemical compounds.

3D printing offers a unique and straightforward approach to fabricate plastic 3D models of molecules and extended solids. "3D Molecules Edit & Test" has an option to directly export the model as an STL file (most 3D printers recognize this format).

"3D Molecules Edit & Test" allows the user to open and view molecules in SDF or PDB format files, for example, from NCBI's PubChem, a public database of compounds or from RCSB Protein Data Bank.

Once the molecules are built, they can be saved or emailed. This is another good feature for assessment as students can send molecules to the teacher and the image opens directly in the email. In building these molecules, guidance is initially needed to show how to use the software. There is a help button that provides clear and concise screen shots demonstrating how to use the app.

System Requirements:
* OS X 10.7 or later
* 6.4 MB

Pricing and Availability:
3D Molecules Edit & Test 1.0 is $6.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Education category.
