The Arachne Molecular Modeller is a powerful yet easy-to-use application which allows molecules to be created, manipulated and displayed on Acorn RISC OS computers.
Other tools allow atoms and fragments to be selected, moved and deleted. A clipboard exists, supporting the usual cut, copy and paste operations with molecular fragments.
A fragments library is provided which can be used within the structure parser. For example, phenol can be built by typing in PhOH.
Molecules can also be printed directly from within Molecular Modeller.

The user-configurable tools pane is visible at the top-left, and the periodic table window at the bottom.
The Arachne Molecular Modeller should run on any computer running Acorn's RISC OS 3.1, 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7 with at least 2MB of RAM. The Molecular Modeller itself is RiscPC and StrongARM compatible. (Unfortunately, the copy protection was not StrongARM compatible, but the latest release removes this.) Full use is made of the better display qualities available on the RiscPC and A7000.
A small bug has been fixed in the latest release, which caused a nasty error in rare circumstances.
This ammonia molecule was captured on a RiscPC and reduced to 256 colours using ChangeFSI.
