|4.5S RNA: STL file
To create the STL file yourself download this model's
open 4.5S.pdband finally use Chimera's File -> Export Scene menu and set the File Type to STL.
After you import the STL file into the CatalystEX application supplied with the printer
you have the opportunity to set the scale of the model. The model you see here was
printed using a scale factor of 1.5.
|M domain of Ffh protein: STL file
4.5S RNA (above) binds to the
of Ffh protein to form a ribonucleoprotein
|Hepatitis B virus: 3-fold symmetry subunits
5-fold symmetry subunits
This is a model of only a portion of the virus. The complete model is
Models prior to dissolving of support material
|Nuclear Pore Complex
The density level was not set high enough for this model, causing parts of the protein complex to not be connected.
When the support material was then dissolved, the disconnected pieces fell off.
|Rat Liver Vault
Four-piece model design as viewed in Chimera held together with magnets (orange). Design details.
|Clathrin Cage: STL file
Clathrin cage from map EMD 5119 smoothed with 5A Gaussian. Black plastic. 6 inches.
As part of an outreach project to high school science students and teachers, we
printed 150 models of eight different virus structures. These models were handed
out as supplemental material for Prof. Joe DeRisi's 2010 HHMI Holiday Lecture.
Here are the various STL files:
|tRNA: STL file
This is PDB model 4tna shown as ribbon
made with Chimera commands
open 4tnaIt was printed on a uPrint plus printer in red ABS plastic about 2 inches across.
The "struts" command was added to Chimera August 21, 2013.
