Product Description
The Dini Surface is a facinating surface with constant negative curvature which looks similar to a flower. It was found by Dini in the 19th century. The abstract mathematical surface extends infinitely, and has infinitely many “leaves”. We chose to show only two of those for this math sculpture. The 3d-data was produced by Oliver Labs ( and can be downloaded at the IMAGINARY website.

IMAGINARY is a project by the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach and supported by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.

Please note: IMAGINARY is an open source and non-commercial project. All 3d files are available under an open license, such that you can re-print the sculptures for own exhibitions (following the license specifications). To reimburse our "3D data expert", who takes care to polish and prepare the 3d data and to put the sculptures on the Shapeways shop, we added to this sculpture a 10% fee to the Shapeways price. This amount will be used only for work related to offering more 3d data and sculptures openly and freely to everyone. You can also print this sculpture from your own account.
