Miramodus Molecular Models

crystal structure models and mineral structure models

 

We design, build and sell beautiful premium quality ball and stick models and other models for use in teaching, museum displays, presentations, awards and legal cases.

 

Molecular models are a vital and engaging part of education in chemistry, and a useful tool in demonstrating new materials to colleagues or customers.  They provide a wonderfully tangible way to demonstrate the relation between molecular structure and chemical function that cannot be replicated with, for example, computer imaging.

 

Our Pre-constructed Models

Pre-constructed ball and stick molecular models comprise the majority of our work, and represent some of the finest crystal structure models that can be purchased.  We have the widest range of scales of molecular structure models in the world, ranging from a scale of 1cm=1Å (“Beevers’ Models”™) through to our giant molecular models at a scale of 20cm=1Å or greater.  We also work with a wide range of materials to suit your purpose and your budget.  We have made molecular and crystal structure models in acrylic, phenolic resin, wood, brass, aluminium, silver and a host of other materials.
The accuracy and compactness of our Beevers’ Models™ system allows our model range to extend over the complete spectrum of 3-dimensional structures in Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Physics and Mathematics.  Our huge list of Beevers' ball and stick models for sale from our catalogue includes crystal structure models, biological, physical, mathematical and crystallographic teaching models. We also make an extensive range of molecular models (i.e. literally, models of molecules) - or any model you want to order.  All the usual favourites are available: biochemistry models of DNA and RNA, inorganic molecules such as fullerenes (buckyballs), from C28 through C60 and C70 to C720 and beyond, inorganic structures such as NaCl or YBCO, as well as materials you have probably never encountered, such as Thorium Zinc Carbide. Even if the model that you want is not in our catalogue, we will still be able to make your structure, whatever its size - all we need are the crystallographic details or node coordinates. 

 

Molecular Model Kits

Kits for any of our models can be supplied on request (as long as you are aware and accept that they are not as easy to put together as most people expect). Because our models are largely designed for display or teaching specific crystallographic or structural concepts, they are not the sort that you can take apart and rebuild, and so we don't make molecular models like other manufaturers do. By their nature, therefore, our Beevers models don’t readily lend themselves to being sold as kits. That being said, however, we routinely make kits for our and large and giant molecular models. These are fantastic for teaching, for museum activities and for fun activities.


Examples of our models can be seen throughout our web-site. Please use the links above to find out more about our products, search our catalogue, or to inquire about having us make a model of your structure.
