3D Molecular Designs prints 3-D physical models of proteins and other molecular structures, with an emphasis on printing 3-D protein models using special techniques. We use 2 rapid prototyping technologies: the ZCorp 3D Printer and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). Both technologies are characterized as additive manufacturing, whereby a solid, 3-D object is constructed by adding materials in layers.

3DMD models are based on x,y,z coordinates obtained from pdb files of known structures, unpublished files or propriety files. We are happy to quote the cost of a model customized to meet your research, education or legal needs. Before submitting your request, you need to decide which technology, format and feature specifications you prefer. If you need help, please contact us or call 414-774-6562.
