hi all.

i am posting here my minimal surface for GC script. it was written in c# and can create bounded minimal surfaces. a minimal surface is a surface with a zero mean curvature. to put it more simply it is the shape of least resistance. the best example of a minimal surface is the experements frei otto did. i highly recomend looking them up or reading his book "Finding Form: Towards an Architecture of the Minimal ".  also hree is a link to some 'famous' minimal surfaces which can all be created using the scipt http://virtualmathmuseum.org/Surface/gallery_m.html  .  

i am going to post some example of more complex minimal surfaces in GC but for now here are the starter files.

minima surface for gc

ENJOY !
