Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that nano-one has a lot of potential and are willing to put in the time and effort to continue the feedback loop that we've started with our beta testers now with a larger audience. We aim to improve the experience and include functionality that will be useful for anyone working at the nano-scale.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“We're planning on launching a full release early next year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include:

Real-time simulations that configures your atom structures to be scientifically accurate.
Redo & undo functionality.
The ability to create and save your own molecular presets.
The whole periodic table
Larger collection of molecular samples such as amino acids.
Features that we've yet to think about that will come from you, the Early Access community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of nano-one includes the ability to draw molecular structures with a set of organic elements. It provides the ability to annotate/draw in 3D space and take screenshots of your work so that you can share your creations. It also comes with some sample molecules to demonstrate how these three dimensional structures are suppose to look instead of seeing the two dimensional sticks on a textbook.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually increase the price as more functionality is added over time.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“If you'd like to join us in the process of improving our software please give us your feedback by answering this short survey or you can always email us at”

About This Software

We will be updating upon community feedback, feel free to send us your thoughts at

Organic chemistry concepts are sometimes difficult to understand when you're looking at a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional molecular structure.

Are you ready to build with organic molecules such as Carbon, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Hydrogen?

Design from the bottom up using more atoms than an chemical modeling kit. Designing with the source-code of matter is not just for scientists. Imagine if instead of bricks from Minecraft, anyone could select elements from the periodic table to create complex molecular structures.

Our goal is to provide the tools necessary to help people build new proteins, molecules and eventually also simulate their interactions. We are working on linking nano-one with complementary molecular modeling and simulation software that would allow for the geometries you created to be saved and exported to other programs that could import them as coordinates. (This is to be released in a later version).

The system is being designed in partnership with the University of California, San Diego.
