algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Generates minimal surfaces from either 4 boundary curves or 2 curves (open or closed)
download the file from ;
Update : 03/06/2011:
The plugin has been updated to now allow multiple curves at each boundary while retaining the kinks. This has been a much requested feature. i also added a new component that generated a mesh directly. 

This plug-in is designed for form finding and does not automatically compute the optimum U/V/I values to get to the most minimal solution. I will add this in the future but play with the U/V/I parameters in order to find the optimum solution. As a designer always returning the optimum solution is not always best so I leave the parameters flexible in order to produce a range of results.

Hi, I am trying to do minimal surface from 3 or 4 closed curves and looking for a headstart and thought this might be a good plugin to start from. Unfortunately, it appears to be non-existent. Where to download this plugin? TIA
