3D & Color in ChemDraw
All about rendering 3D molecules, and save molecules as 3D printable objects
Dark mode for ChemDraw?
Hi friends, Just having a thought :) I have started using MS Office in Dark Mode, which gives a background of RGB #323130 and makes the 'automatic' text colour appear white. I like to paste little ChemDraws into OneNote (sadly they are pasted as images), and with the default stylesheet co
What can you do with the 3MF format beyond 3D Printing?
3D printing is a technology that is rapidly growing in popularity, and it is having a profound impact on the way that people create things. It is a flexible technique that is proving to be extremely valuable in a variety of scientific applications, notably in biomedical research. In chemical researc
Everything you need to know about the 3D Clean-up function
ChemDraw’s easy-to-use interface and advanced features have made it a favorite among chemists for decades. But did you know that ChemDraw can also create 3D representations of molecules? With ChemDraw’s recent 3D clean-up capabilities, you can easily create realistic drawings of molecules in three d
Bug in generation of 3mf structure
Hi, Is this a good place to report bugs? By the way, it's very difficult to find the link that allows users to actually ask a question/create a new post. I was only able to access this link by clicking on "more announcements" (and weirdly, the link to create new posts is nowhere to be found wh
Suggestions on improvements to the 3D functions
The combination of the 3D Clean Up and the copy to 3MF functions is awesome! Thanks for implementing them in recent versions of ChemDraw. I plan to use them extensively in my teaching. I have a few suggestions to improve on these: 1) As I mentioned in another post, I think it would be g
Problems with the 3D Clean Up function
So how does the 2D-to-3D "3D Clean Up" function work? It seems to conduct some type of structural energy minimization, then show the structure in 3D. The reason I am asking is because the function has proven to be very unreliable for me. It seems like the level of computation for the energy mini
3D molecules from ChemDraw 21.0 animated in PowerPoint
For several years, my lab has been interested in exploring how 3D objects such as molecules, orbitals and surfaces can be directly manipulated in PowerPoint. With the introduction of new 3D functions in ChemDraw 21.0, I thought this would be a good time to demonstrate the kind of stuff that can
