Create Detailed Molecule Models With This Freeware Bundle

Chemsketch allows you to draw representations of chemicals and molecules. It is a freeware bundle of tools that allows you to create three-dimensional models of molecules very easily. It not only helps you draw molecules it also helps you create and draw them consistently.

A Powerful Designer Program For Chemistry Students

Part of the problem that students and chemists face is that they are unable to represent three-dimensional molecules with modern graphic design programs. Many of their attempts generate odd-looking diagrams that are off model and are different sizes and dimensions. Chemsketch puts an end to that by helping make the models more uniform. The software helps you create symmetrical representations and one molecule will look similar to the next in both dimensions orientation and size which helps when trying to compare one model to another.

Conclusion - A Rare Program That You Should Treasure

There are few programs on the Internet that allow you to draw chemical and molecules with any degree of accuracy and uniformity. Chemsketch isn't unique but it is certainly a rare and special tool that chemistry users should value and hold onto. The software is similar to other CADware and editing programs but it was specially designed for the drawing of molecules in chemistry.


  • It allows you to create very detailed models
  • You will be able to draw molecules in a very consistent manner
  • It allows you to add details and be very specific about dimensions


  • It is tricky to learn
  • There are not enough pre-drawn molecules
  • It takes a long time to create a drawing
