Accelrys DS Visualizer[edit]

Hi Karl,

I use DS Visualizer too. All you need to do is adjust your settings - lighting and rendering quality (set this to Ultra).

Follow the guidelines at en:User:Benjah-bmm27/MakingMolecules for details.

Good luck!

Ben 20:19, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I would have written explicitly how to set the rendering quality to ultra in the first message, but I don't have my PC with DS Visualizer on it here, it's back at university.

Let me think, hmm...

...Edit > Preferences > 3D Window

Try that.

Cheers

No, you're not dumb! It took me ages to realise the same thing, it's not intuitive!
Enjoy making models :)

THF[edit]

Hi again,

Your 3D models are looking great! Love it.

I saw that you updated from one conformer to another Image:Tetrahydrofuran-scaledBallAndStick.png - how come? The latest image looks higher in energy than the first. I've got a minimized structure from the Spartan database available at http://www.benjamin-mills.com/THF.pdb if you want to use it.

Cheers

Ben 13:59, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

My fault about the PDB link - I forgot a folder! It should be http://www.benjamin-mills.com/molecular-models/THF.pdb
To rotate one molecule and not another, highlight the molecule you want to rotate (it will turn completely yellow). Then select the rotate tool and hold down control (I think) while you left-click.
Not sure about how to get allene-style double bonds to be orthogonal to one another. Try repeatedly clicking "minimize energy" until it looks right. A more realistic representation of cumulative double bonds involves molecular orbitals, but DSV doesn't do those. The HOMO of allene looks like this, apparently!
There are several free ChemDraw-type programs out there. Open-source molecule editors are listed at en:molecule editor.

Molecules in images[edit]

Hello:

I find a file ([[File:HexosesHemiacetal.png]]) upload by you. I am recently interested in generate images with organochemical structures. Do you know any freeware or public software to make this representations? Thank you and merry christmas. --Bestiasonica (talk) 12:54, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

I will try to download it and check this software. I hope it will be useful. Thank you for your answer. If it rules I will tell you again. C U --Bestiasonica (talk) 22:34, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Karlhahn!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

The quality of the chemical structure File:HexosesHemiacetal.svg is disputed[edit]

Dispute notification The chemical structure File:HexosesHemiacetal.svg you uploaded has been tagged as and is now listed in Category:Low quality chemical diagrams. Files in this category might be deleted after one month if there is no upload of an improved version, if there is no objection from the uploader or other users and if a better version exists. Please discuss on the file talk page if you feel that the dispute is inappropriate. If you agree with the dispute, you can either upload an improved version or simply allow the file to be deleted.

In all cases, please do not take the dispute personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you! --DMacks (talk) 18:45, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
