An algorithm for the exact construction of triply periodic minimal surfaces recently developed by the author is illustrated simply with the first parametrisation of the F-RD surface discovered by Alan Schoen. An exact expression for the F-RD Weierstrass function is derived, from which all quantitative features of this surface may be readily established.
