Decorative knots

trefoil-ornamentsI’ve been back printing on the FormLabs 1+ liquid printer this week. I decided it was time to print out some more knots, this time for use as festive decorations. I printed out Laura Taalman’s Trefoil Managerie and used some red gift ribbon to create ornaments. Previously Laura had given me a torus with a (5,2) torus knot. I also turned this into a decoration.



I’ve also printed more snowflakes. Again from Laura Taalmans’ Snowflake Machine, the small snowflakes that have a circle so you can hang them up. Awesome.

I’ve been using Mathgrrl’s (aka Laura Taalman) snowflake ornaments (Thigiverse thing 195032). She’s since customized the design here:

I also had a blast printing some of her fractal snowflakes from the Snowflakerator snowflake machine found here:
