1. ### Nodoids

A "nodoid" is another surface of revolution with constant non-zero mean curvature. It is generated by a hyperbolic catenary, which is in turn generated by rolling a hyperbola along a line, as explained in  Constant Mean Curvature . This is a...

2. ### Trajectories of a Particle in a Bowl

Model II 6 relates to the  classical mechanical problem of finding the trajectory of a point moving in space, under certain assumptions. The shape of the model is a spherical bowl, cut out by removing half of a sphere from a solid block. In...

6. ### Catenoid

Model II 3d represents a catenoid - a surface of revolution, generated by rotating a catenary curve about an axis. More concretely, a catenoid is defined by rotating the curve $z = a \cosh(x/a)$ about the $z$ axis. Catenoids are the only...
