A color 3D model of a water-soluble peptide was made based on the crystallographic experimental coordinates (   The peptide model was ‘fine-tuned’ (color, scale & representation) in PyMol ( before being converted to a VRML file format and 3D printed in NextFab Studio’s Z-Corp Spectrum Z510 3D printer. Tech Supervisor Derek Spence of NextFab has developed techniques which allow us to push the limits of the 3D printing process and successfully build models of this complexity.
