Actin Protein Structure
by destroyer2012, published
I'll be putting up more structures I make on my blog, pdbprint pdbprint.blogspot.com/
EDIT: Oops! Seems like I got my files confused. This is actually from the pdb structure 1ATN, which is not a filament structure. I've got the filament structure ready to print; just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've uploaded it too; maybe you can spot the difference!

they are PDB files, and the program which converts between pdb and stl is called chimera http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimer... I select "Multiscale models" from the tools
gt;higher order structures menu and generate models with a resolution of 4. That gives these nice solid surfaces. I do some postprocessing with rhino as well

I didn't add pegs or holes or whatnot because the parts are quite small (and I wasn't sure my rig could print them out properly anyway. One could do this easily enough, though.
Since this is the shape of actin within a filament, print out a lot and see if you can put them together into a filament shape!
