I've been flooded with mail for this. I thought modeling programs
were pretty common. Silly me.
The program in question is called MacInPlot. It is written by
Tom Smith (tom at dopey.bio.purdue.edu).
The program produces ribbons, ball&stick, and space filled models.
I know nothing about Biology, I have been using the program to create
models images for QuickTime movies for a Molecules of Life CD we're
selling to highschools.
I don't know how Dr. Smith feels about distribution of his program
so everyone who is interested should e-mail him directly for it.
He's pretty busy, so it may take a few days for a reply.
