Recently we proposed a periodic surface model to assist geometric construction in computer-aided nano-design. This implicit surface model helps create super-porous nano structures parametrically and support crystal packing. In this paper, we study construction methods of Minkowski sums for periodic surfaces. A numerical approximation approach based on the Chebyshev polynomials is developed and can be applied in both surface normal direction matching and volume translation formulations.
