Cables and torus knots
So it’s high time for another post. And while a raytrace of a reflective chrome torus hovering over a chessboard is tempting, how about a torus knot on glass?
Think of this green torus as surrounding a meridian of another solid torus.
Then this torus knot will “interpolate” from one cable to another.
You can make sense of “interpolate” homologically: OuterCable-InnerCable=TorusKnot.
This was all quickly whipped up using Rhino. There’s bit of experimenting some of the materials of their Toucan rendering. The glass distorts stuff a bit too much sometimes. Below are a selection of more pics. Click on any to go to my Flickr and see yet more.
