Chem3D and ChemDraw for iPad updated

 

Both ChemDraw and Chem3D have been updated, the release notes don’t give much information on the updates other than Redesigned for iOS7 and bug fixes.

The use of mobile devices in teaching has offered new opportunities and a recent presentation by Layne Morsch illustrates this quite nicely. Using ChemDraw for iPad and Flick-to-Share to Increase Engagement in Organic Chemistry. The page has a couple of embedded videos that give more details.

The other feature that is now becoming mainstream is the 3D-printing and since Chem3D can export in .stl format it is not surprising people have started to experiment with creating 3D models of molecules, there is a brief video here, unfortunately it is a loop of the printing process so don’t expect to see the final product. CambridgeSoft have also produced their own videos of these apps in action
