Surfaces that are geometrically interesting. 

Surfaces of Revolution^{}Surfaces of revolution are created by rotating a curve through space. The sphere, for example, is created by rotating a circle about its diameter. Minimal SurfacesMinimal surfaces are known for their zero mean curvature. The helicoid is an excellent example. Ruled SurfacesRuled surfaces get their name because they can be reparameterized so that the surface can be created by a line translating and rotating through space. Developable Surfaces^{}
