Thread: Molecule Drawing Programs?
07-03-2005, 12:18 AM #1LittlewesethGuestMolecule Drawing Programs?
I'm looking around for a program similar to ACD/Chemsketch (acdlabs.com) for windows, except running on a Mac (preferably natively written, not ported). Right now i'm (trying) to use a program called XDrawChem, which appears to be a dodgy port of a sourceforge project. It's kludgy, very kludgy.
EDIT: I should problably be more specific. I'm looking for something to draw 2D diagrams of molecules.
Anyone else know anything, or I am the only one who would actually want software like this? (i know i'm a geek. shaddap :p)

iMol isn't quite what i'm looking for - as far as i know, it doesn't let me draw 2D diagrams, just look at 3d models (though the models look really, really nice.... screenshot time!)
I found something else called CambridgeSoft ChemDraw - but their download process is so involuted that i've had to provide way more personal information than i like, and it didn't get me anywhere near the demo - and apparently no one likes the program anyway.

Great program (iMol)! and people say chemistry is not fun.

tell them to get a load of that buckytube, and all those other cool molecules! I bet if they knew that, at the molecular level, everything is rainbow coloured, everyone would rush to look.....
too bad there's no real 'light' at molecular level :p
