This looks like a fairly nice program. I have just tried it with a tRNA
molecule from the Brookhaven databank (around 1600 atoms) which it draws
in less than 10 minutes on a slow Mac II. In contrast, the Chem 3D
program can't draw an 800 atom structure in 2 hours (when I gave up).
You can now also find a copy of the demo version of this program via
anonymous ftp to iubio.bio.indiana.edu, cd [archive.chemistry.mac], get
macmimic-demo.hqx. You can also find a demo copy of ball&stick there.
I have no affiliation with Instar software, the developer of MacMimic. I
do hope that Bionet will allow informational messages about commercial
software, such as the original posting. Anders did not, in my opinion,
cross the line from useful information into advertising.
