Fun print. thank you. You may want to make a small change - the CH3 on the bottom is not attached. so the rest of the model comes off the bed and that stays behind :)

Thank you for your comment! I will revise the file!

Can you please pose the code

What do you need?

= caféine, aussi désignée sous les noms de 1,3,7-triméthylxanthine ou méthylthéobromin

Love this! As a chemist I have an interest in this and other molecules of similar structure. Would you be willing to share what you used to design this project? Did you use one of the chemdraw programs then convert to .stl or just a 3D modeling application with output to .stl? I'd like to try my hand at similar projects, and would appreciate you sharing your experience with a newbie. Thank you, and this will be one of my first print projects when I get my printer up and running.

Hi man! I used Solidworks, is a powerful tool. But you can also use other open source softwares as OpenSCAD. I will be glad if I can help you!

Thanks Neo_Usagi ! I have no idea about that!

Nice model, always love seeing chemistry in 3D.

But more precisely, this is theobromine, a primary constituent of cocoa. While its most well known to be in abundance in cocoa, its also in teas and other caffeine producing plants. Admittedly it does make up about 5% of the dry weight of cocoa, but its not the only thing in chocolate. Although it is the primary reason why dogs (and cats) can't eat chocolate.

Sorry if this comes off preachy but I figured I'd share enough information so that anyone interested could look into the "formula" for chocolate in greater detail. I think the chemistry of chocolate (and coffee) is fascinating. Keep up the good work!
