Great idea, Marius, and very good looking. thinking of the slice and magnets is wonderful.
May I ask how did you model the DNA piece?
That was a bit tricky and is not modeled as you might expect. The part that goes through the pore is PDB ID 4OCB , but after printed was slightly heated and straightened to fit. The DNA portion from the polymerase is a random sequence created in UCSF Chimera. Each strand was exported individually and after printing, one strand was slightly heated again and bent to fit the polymerase channel. Then the three parts (4OCB, the two strands of DNA) were glued together.
