You can print out a single insulin monomer or six to build a hexamer.
There are two monomer files, A and B. To build the hexamer, print out three copies of each and assemble using blu tack and the PDB entry structure view for guidance (https://www.rcsb.org/3d-view/4INS/1; Assembly: bioassembly 3; Style: surface; Colour: by chain).
The hexameric complex is used to store insulin before it is released into the body.
You can read more about the insulin molecule here: http://pdb101.rcsb.org/motm/14
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!

Or, you can use the Thingiverse Mobile app found on
