Present 3D Data with AxPyMOL
Streamlining presentations just became a lot easier with AxPyMOL, a plugin for Windows PowerPoint that enables presentation of 3-D molecular data without having to "tab out" of PowerPoint slides.
AxPyMOL allows users to easily embed PyMOL shows saved from actual PyMOL sessions directly into PowerPoint slides.
