Calabi-Yau manifold is a model in certain branches of mathematics and physics, it shows the idea of dimensions of space and time. This project explores the variety of the forms of Calabi-Yau manifold, which could possibly encourage the use of math/physic knowledge in parametric design.

This series of surfaces are generated by a customised python script in grasshopper (thanks to Dimitry Demin ), then printed using 3D-Print technology.
