Molecular View is a desktop application for the visualization of protein database (PDB) files. It interprets ".pdb" and ".ent" files, allowing the visualization of the correspondent 3D molecules. PDB example files can be downloaded from wwwPDB. The software also enables exporting the 3D model to ".stl" (binary) and ".vrml" (2.0) file formats, frequently used for Rapid Prototyping physical reconstruction.
The software is written in Python 2.5. Visualization Toolkit VTK 5.1 is used both for visualization and file conversion. In regards to the user interface, wxPython 2.8 was used. Molecular View is multi-platform (Windows and Linux).
The team who developed Molecular View is also responsible for the 3D Medical Reconstruction software InVesalius, which is inserted into the project Rapid Pr
