The Catalan Minimal Surface

  Because The LEGO Company get paranoid about this sort of thing I suppose I'd better make it clear that I have no formal affiliation with them, that my views are my own and do not necessarily represent theirs, and so on. So if you think any of this is official you are as deluded as they are.



Well this has certainly depleted my stocks of blue bricks.

Just in case anyone's interested, here's the LDRAW .DAT file for this sculpture.

Beware - the .DAT file builds it out of 1x1 bricks. Actually constructing this out of larger bricks so that it holds together is a (non-trivial) exercise for the reader!
