ChemDoodle 3D v6.2 introduces advanced and customizable anaglyph support for augmented reality (AR) right on your computer. Now you can fully visualize the 3D molecules you are building in 3D! If you have red-cyan anaglyph glasses, you will see the above image in 3D. You can click on the image to see it in a larger size.

In addition to the classic red-cyan glasses, green-magenta and amber-blue glasses are supported as well. You can find anaglyph glasses cheaply from several online retailers, including Amazon and Walmart. Many options cost less than $10 with shipping, so combined with a $15 ChemDoodle license, you can take advantage of augmented reality and view molecular graphics in real 3D for only $25!

We have also implemented the Dubois method, for the most comfortable anaglyph viewing. Use of the Dubois method is an option, and you can control both the focal length and eye separation parameters to customize the anaglyph to your preference. Please see chapter 13 of the ChemDoodle 3D user guide for more information. Here are a few more anaglyphs for your viewing pleasure (all require red-cyan glasses).
