Abstract

This is an update to PII: S2665963820300178.

We present an updated version v2.0 of our minimal surface generator MiniSurf v1.0, that creates triply periodic minimal surface (TPMS) computer-aided design (CAD) files for both finite element modeling and additive manufacturing. Besides making the GUI more user-friendly, in this new version we significantly improve the mesh quality of the generated CAD files by incorporating a mesh smoothing feature. With this new smoothing feature, MiniSurf v2.0 can now produce high quality CAD files for more accurate finite element modeling and more precise additive manufacturing.
