We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a 3D resconstruction of the Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum Mcm complex derived from negatively stained transmission electron micrographs from http://www.pdbj.org/emnavi/emnavi_detail.php?id=1134
I tried to print this upright (i.e., with the hollow barrel pointing up from the build plate) without support, but that only worked to the 50% point where the overhangs started. Printing on its side (as in the attached image) is going much more smoothly.

So what's this mean?
We're sure bochman would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
