You only have to write their 'short-coded formulas' such as cx out properly, so then you get this: 10.0*(cos(x)*cos(y) + cos(y)*cos(z) + cos(z)*cos(x)) - 5.0*(cos (x*2) + cos (y*2) + cos (z*2)) -14 and K3DSurf will make you a perfect Triply Periodic Surface. Tip: By default, the x,y,z-range is set from -4 to +4, but if you make it -pi to +pi (just type in like that) or a multiple of it (e.g. -2*pi to 2*pi), you get an whole number of unit cells which looks nicer. Cheers, Ferry
