The large molecule is Taq polymerase, in the process of replicating DNA. The blue molecule is the source strand of DNA, and the red molecule is the newly replicated strand of DNA.
I recently learned how to create a 3d model of a complex protein or molecule, using the Protein Data Bank and VMD, an open source software from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This protein is Taq polymerase, a DNA polymerase from the bacteria Thermus aquaticus. Taq polymerase is used in the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique used to replicate a sample of genetic material. For more information, check out the Protein Data Bank.
Smoker’s Lungs vs. Healthy Lungs
This is the result of my first assignment in my 3d modeling class. The lungs were extracted from a patient data set in the program Mimics, retopologized in 3d Studio Max, painted and sculpted in Mudbox, lit and rendered in 3d Studio Max (again), and then composited in Photoshop. Whew!

hey guys, here are a couple of things i have been working on over the past few weeks, enjoy!
hemostats, 3ds max
donuts, 3ds max
some figure drawings from the last session
batman (adam west!), mudbox
i used to love this show when i was a kid
stomach, 3ds max
hey guys check it out, here is another exercise from my 3d modeling class, created in 3ds max
figure drawing 36, graphite
medical packaging exercise, 3ds max
i scanned this walgreens medicine package in, and then created this picture in 3d studio max.
