Introduction: Continuous Surface Bracelet
This bracelet consists of differentiated gyroids, i.e. infinitely connected triply periodic minimal surfaces.
The 3D printed result is a rigid porous structure that separates space into two oppositely congruent labyrinths of passages.

Step 1: Create the Differentiated Gyroids
1 Create a regular gyroids net, composed of 20 components in X, 22 in Y and 3 in Z using MathMod.
2 Create a non-uniform mesh from forcefield in Processing using different repellers and attractors.
3 Morph the regular gyroids net into the mesh using Grasshopper.
Step 2: Morph Differentiated Gyroids Into Arm Mesh
Adapt the resulting differentiated gyroids into the arm mesh morphology or body scanned geometry according to triangular tessellation in Grasshopper.
Step 3: 3D Print the Bracelet
Prepare the .stl file for 3D printing and print! This bracelet was 3D
printed in white nylon plastic with a matte finish at Shapeways.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Enjoy your 3D printed wearable!
