What program is the model created with? Would it be possible to share the source models to allow modifcation to create new atoms?

This looks awesome, I would love to see a Phosphor atom as well to try and do DNA.

How are the neodym magnets held in place? They are easily strong enough to overcome the friction and the glue (I can barely get them off my magnet wall by force)

Hi Felix,
Glad to hear you have made some models. The magnets can be held in place by either pushing them directly in the holes, or using a bit of glue if the holes are a bit loose. Results depend on the quality of your printer and the tolerences in the print and magnets. Some of the magnets i used were much weaker, so I didn't have so much of a problem. If yours are too strong, perhaps try only putting every second or third magnet in.
Good luck with that!
Best regards,
Mike

I printed like 200 of these now, I'll post some pictures soon. I wanted to build the caffeine molecule, but I can't find NSP2_2D in the files.

Hi Treeton,

Updated! Please let me know if you have anymore issues.

Best regards,
Mike

Nevermind, I figured it out, but it'd still be nice if it was fixed

Hi Treeton,
Doh! ah, sorry about that, - I don't have access to my files right now; I'll upload once I get the chance.
Thanks for letting me know.
Cheers,
Mike
