How to Build Your Custom Model

Here are 3 lists (2 organic compounds, 1 inorganic) you can use in your test drive. Copy up to any 10 of these into the 3D Molecular Model Builder. Or, up to any 10 organic compounds (unfortunately it doesn't build crystals). Then follow the instructions. Type carefully, the wrong syntax will cause an error. The video below can guide you.

These models can be built in 3 slightly different styles as illustrated below and based on our standard Orbit Model Sets. You simply choose the style you prefer to return the appropriate parts. Orbit Flexible is the most versatile.
