We find that it is often helpful when working with molecular structures to have a 3D printed model. This allows the structure to be easily viewed from all angles as well as making it easier to identify symmetries of interest. We currently use a Form 1 from Formlabs to print these structures.

Here you can download SDF files for several structures of current interest to the TCQP group.
