    Knots 3D 1.0 available today on the App Store!

    App Store - Knots 3D

    Knots 3D will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Draw, Zoom, Flip, Rotate! Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 90 or 180? Use the 360 tool to rotate the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D! Watch the knot draw itself and pause/play the animation when needed. Use the Zoom tool to get a closer look and the Flip tool to get a different perspective. How cool is that!

    Check out a video of the app in action here:


    Each knot has detailed information including tying pointers, strength and reliability, structural info, and Ashley reference numbers (ABoK) and occasionally the history behind the knot.

    The knots are arranged by both Category (Boating, Climbing, Scouting, etc) and Class (Bend, Loop, Stopper, etc). If you find a knot you like or want to come back to later, add it to your Favorites list for quick reference.

    We will be adding more knots to the Knots 3D app in the coming months. Please contact us on our support site with requests for new knots and we will see what we can do to get them added to the app. Have fun looking at knots in a whole new way!

    Thanks,

    Knots 3D v1.3 Universal app for iPad and iPhone released on the App Store!

    App Store - Knots 3D

    Knots 3D will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Draw, Zoom, Flip, Rotate! Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 45? or a full 180 so you can see the back of the knot? Use the 360 tool to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D! As the knot is drawn, pause and play to see all the ins and outs (Something about a rabbit going up the hole, around the tree, and back down the hole )
