3D model description

####Gyroid Patch Frame

#####It is really fun to watch the soap films interact with each other.

The gyroid patch frame is a derivative of my previous design ( While the wire frame works fine, it is not quite accurate and is hard to assemble for a large structure. The present frame is also designed around a cube. Once printed (with minimal support), it can be used to get a pretty accurate soap film that mimics a gyroid patch. Eight frames can be glued together (using contact glue such as Gorilla clear grip) for a gyroid cell skeleton. If you dip it in soapy water and pull it up slowly, you may be able to get a soap-film model for a gyroid unit.

Two versions are included: circular and square frames. To facilitate printing, I rotated the model so it touches the bed at three points.
