This is my third attempt to construct a 3-dimensional model of the molecule riboflavin. The model was constructed from a protein data bank file, was manipulated in the program VMD, and was then further manipulated in tinkercad (I really like this program). This is my third attempt at this molecule. I am still having an issue with gaps in the bonds between hydrogen atoms and their corresponding atoms, but. just with these bonds. I fixed these by manually replacing these with cylinders in tinkercad. The current print turned out perfect. I also broke out the model paints and painted the final version. Pictures are now included.


I am printing this with a raft (no supports needed, as I have manually provided my own). My first print was at medium quality. The raft makes it easier to separate the mounts from the replicator base. Once completed, the mounts need to be removed. You can find links on wikipedia if you want to paint the atoms the correct color, as I have done. I am now moving on to more complicated full protein structures.
