The Bifilar Moebius Edge Gallery is named uniformly, expanding from a (1,0) unknotted circle through a (7,6) knot.

Additional files will be added in the future, such as this cutaway view following, and eventually more animation and/or video composed for various dynamic perspectives and such.

Torus cross-section patterns

Notice the square pattern in the cross-section of the (4,3) knot below:


The 3-class knots have a triangular cross-section pattern, the 5-class a pentagonal pattern, etc.

Note that in the animation sequence above, the same rendering is used in each frame, only rotated incrementally through the cutaway about the axis through the torus center, creating a nice illusion of toroidal rotation because a cutaway view doesn't afford view of the whole object rotating. However, the same toroidal rotational dynamic is afforded by phase stepping a 3-phase coil set.
