ChemDraw replacement?


Quite a few years ago I introduced the free version of ChemDraw here to SM.

Then my long hiatus and two laptops turned to ewaste down the line and I don't have ChemDraw anymore.

The latest versions aren't free (rather pricy, in fact!)

So what do you people here use for free chemical drawing software?

I use ChemSketch.

Marvin Sketch is another decent one that I used to use, before I got full access to ChemDraw through my university.

I probably have an old executable that you can use to install. On holiday at the moment. U2U me if you want it. I may forget.

Most if my need is for ball and stick models. I use Webmo. Yhe web version has a free demo mode. The phone app cost me a few dollars and animates molecular vibrations. It is pretty cool.

BKChem is a decent FOSS molecular drawing program. A little rudimentary compared to ChemDraw, but still it can do the basic things that make up 95% of what you need such a program for.
