Description
Morin's surface is one visualization of turning a self-intersecting sphere inside-out without pinching or creasing it. The focal point of the model is that at which 4 surfaces intersect, the minimum requirement for everting a sphere. Created within Sketchup 8. Only one angle was calculated. The rest of the design fell into place using Sketchup's tools. I'm not happy with the sharp angle at which the "tires" straighten out, but after creating the arcs for them I just wanted to finish the model. I may fix it later.
