Molecular Modeling

Hello all,

I have a question for the list regarding molecular modeling. I have a client who is interested in modeling protein molecules and turning them into RP parts. There is even interest in doing this in color (Z-Corp machine.) My question concerns getting .stl files (or other format that can ultimately lead to RP parts) out of molecular modeling packages. Does anyone have any experience with a software package that is designed for this type of modeling and which can also output useful files? My client uses Molecular Simulations' Insight package as well as Grasp. They have said that they would switch to another package if it will facilitate getting this done.

I will summarize what I learn from this thread and repost. Thanks in advance.
