(StratasysBlog) Scientific models can be expensive and hard to come by – especially finding models for students’ precise learning goals. The following guide explains how you or your students can find and 3D print models to help them learn. There are many well-known general repositories of 3D printable model files, such as Thingiverse and GrabCAD, a website guide focusing on the sources that will provide you with more precise scientific models has been published by Stratasys.

It includes the chemical models and biological models. As one example, the Protein Data Bank with three-dimensional shapes of proteins, nucleic acids and complex assemblies that help students and researchers understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease. When you download files from the Protein Data Bank, they are in a .cif file format.
