In this paper we study surfaces in$R$^{3}that arise as limit shapes in random surface models related to planar dimers. These limit shapes are$surface tension minimizers$, that is, they minimize a functional of the form ∫$σ$(∇$h$)$dx$$dy$among all Lipschitz functions$h$taking given values on the boundary of the domain. The surface tension$σ$has singularities and is not strictly convex, which leads to formation of$facets$and$edges$in the limit shapes.
