I am looking for a free software able to draw 3d micelle configuration like the figure attached.

Any suggestion?

    $\begingroup$ I think Packmol might be what you're looking for. $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '20 at 21:24

    $\begingroup$ You're welcome. GROMACS can do micelle simulations, but maybe the visualization is done in VMD? Can you please tell us where this diagram came from? I might like to ask the authors how these specific figures were generated. $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '20 at 21:25

    $\begingroup$ @FelipeS.S.Schneider I use packmol to create initial configurations of my Lammps simulations (software that i use to do my molecular simulations). I agree with you that with Packmol i could do that. With packmol, I would have to create the system and, after that, post processing in a software like vmd. However, what I'm looking for is something simple, a freeware software able to draw 3d structures like the observed ones in this kind of system (i just wanna draw something didatic, without much detail). $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '20 at 22:20

    $\begingroup$ I found that Rhino3d is able to draw this kind of structure (i was refuted and the author fast reply me). I will refresh my question with this software suggestion, however, i will let my question open if someone else would like to give any other suggestion. $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '20 at 22:32

    $\begingroup$ @EmersonPL Excellent! In any case, you could add an answer to your own question, so that the solution you found can be shared with others. $\endgroup$ Jun 18 '20 at 22:37

I found some software that can do this kind of work:

  • Rhino3d
  • 3ds Max

    $\begingroup$ I'm very glad you found the answer, and I thank you for sharing it with us so that the next person might benefit from your answer. I wonder if it might be possible for you to elaborate on your answer a bit? For this software recommendation question, I suggested a software and wrote the advantages and disadvantages: materials.stackexchange.com/a/1324/5. In this one I gave links to some of the important sites related to the software (main website, documentation site, GitHub repository, etc): materials.stackexchange.com/a/1152/5. In other questions people say whether it's free etc $\endgroup$ Jun 19 '20 at 1:04
