Custom built molecular models



New crystal structure models and molecules


Extra features



Very often, you will want a model of a structure or molecule that we've never made before. That's not problem at all to us (in fact, we love new structures). All we need is for you to tell us what the compound is, if it's been published. If you can send us a crystallographic file for the compound, that simplifies things.

Whether or not the compound is in our catalogue, you may not want a simple stand-alone molecular model, and require extra features to illustrate what you need to convey. If you can imagine a molecular model and features that you want to accompany it, the chances are that we can build it. Simply tell us what you want, and we will do our best to help you. Many of our model types and model features are available now because a customer asked for them at some point and they became part of our standard products.

A six-foot molecular model of DNA? pretty straightforward. Lighting in the model base? No problem. An engraved plaque on a granite base? easy. Perspex models, brass models - even models made in precious metals or coated with metal film.

In short, if you have an idea of what you want, no matter how outlandish or impractical you think it might be, talk to us. The chances are that we've either done it before, we know how to do it, or we know who to ask to find out how to do it. If you want something unusual, but don't know what you want, talk to us - we can almost certainly think of something that will give you what you are after. Take a look at our page of extra features that will give you a starting point for some of the things that we have done for our customers in the past.

As an friend of ours once put it:

"Our job is not to give the customer what they ask for, it's to give them what they didn't realise they could have."
