Chen-Gackstatter Surface

Achieve minimal surface using bending-active structure.
Chen, 2016-01-07

Recently I've been studying minimal surface and found one spectacular minimal surface called Chen-Gackstatter Surface, which changes its geometry according two key parameters. We tried to make a physical model out of it and also simulated the surface using bending-active strategy in kangaroo, which can calculate a equilibrium between bending active frame and tensile membrane.
