I would love to make this when my school gets a 3d printer shortly. Big question, how would you handle double and triple bonds?

New to 3d printing, and tried a carbon atom and bond on a Replicator 2 in PLA. Wishing I had a slightly more compliant material to try it with. Overall, it looks good.

Would be interested to see how you get on with this, despite 850 downloads no one seems to have printed a set except me. Let me know if you think any of the parts need updating, I still have the original Solidworks files I can easily update.

Love this thing, How about Phosphorus? then we could make great looking DNA double helix's just like the image on wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNAhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D...

Phosphorous has 4 bonds? could you not just print the carbon atom in a different colour say Purple? happy to put a phosphorous atom up if it has different bond angles to carbon, just let me know. I would get a real kick out of someone printing alot of these and assembling a large molecule.

Hi! Phosphorous supports five bonds: one (migrating) double, and three singles. I'm not sure how that affects the bond angles or if they're identical to carbon. :D

Phosphorous would bond the same way that nitrogen does, one electron pair (non-bonding) with 3 electrons available to form bonds.
