<< I've been searching around for molecular CAD tools
and have so far found only Crystal Sketchpad and
NanoCAD (and it's offspring). Crystal Sketchpad is
clearly the most advanced of the two, since
NanoCAD is very primitive in it's editing
facilities. Are there any other molecular CAD
packages (specifically geared toward
nanotechnology) available? Wasn't Autodesk developing such software?
Check out www.mdli.com/download/ and get the Chime 2 beta 4 browser plugin, then look at the examples through their page. It's an amazing way of viewing 3d molecules, although I'm not sure how to make youer own, if you find out, let me know please.
