I am completely fascinated by minimal surfaces like the Gyroid Cube I modeled a while ago. So, I decided to create a few more, using Ken Brakke’s site as reference. As done withe Gyroid model, I created approximate surfaces using Rhino, and then created a thickened mesh using MeshLab.
The first model was a Schwartz P Surface:
Next I made a Schoen I6 surface. I knew that this model would be tricky to print, so I modeled in some support walls that could be easily removed once printed:
Finally, I modeled a Batwing. With a bit of guidance from Fabulously Fabricated, I was able to get something that looked reasonably good:
After printing these, I’ve got a nice little collection!
Thanks for reading!
