Bead model of a Trinoid

Tsai-Rong Liu (劉采容), an undergraduate at chemistry department of the National Taiwan University, built this interesting graphitic structure which approximates the trinoid, a minimal surface with three catenoid openings. Similar graphitic surfaces with k catenoid openings, i.e. k-noids, can be built similarly.
