We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a molecular model of an RNA helix. RNAs are transcribed from DNA in the cell and are important to many cellular processes.
This will require support material to print properly. It's also available on Shapeways to print (at cost, no markup) if you do not have the ability to print this at home.
If people are interested I can try to make another version that has small bars in between the base-pairs to allow it to be printed without dissolvable support. (but I don't own a 3D printer so I'd need a volunteer to test it out).

So what's this mean?
We're sure codygeary 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!
