Nano-scale modeling / Molecular modeling

bddalton
Can this software be used to modeling on the molecular scale?  I need to make a water filter model for my research.
Best,
Brian

Hi,

Yes & No.

OpenSCAD is unitless, so theoretically if you can work in 64 bit IEEE floating point OpenSCAD limits, you should be good.

However, ATM there are issues with small numbers. If you operate at, say, a scale 10000 times bigger, then scale down the final result by 10000 then it should be OK. But you'd want to do some early testing to make sure. (Depending how small you want to go 100,000 maybe wise)
