These knots were created by taking data provided by mathematician Jason Cantarella of the University of Georgia and using Mathematica to "tube" the data into a format that could be output as an STL file.

Use for jewelry, game tokens, swag, or mathematical purposes.

Do you have a list of the knots types included in this file?

Alas, no - I got carried away putting lots of them in there and didn't keep track. I have files for all the knots up to 8 crossings and will be posting them over the holiday break.

The look very nice in purple! Just a question, how do you manage to correct the mesh of the stl files coming from mathematica? The ones I got were full of holes and slicing them is impossible.

I'm making them with
Graphics3D[{CapForm["Round"], Tube[pts, .2]}]

Haven't tried correcting them with Tinkercad yet, thanks for the idea!
