IlliKnot: Visualizing Mathematical Knots in 3D


Knot theory has surprisingly many uses in both pure and applied mathemathics. It appears everywhere from topology to the study of knotted polymers such as DNA. The goal of this project is to generate visually appealing meshes from numerical representations of knots so that they may be rendered and 3D printed.
