Product Description
This model illustrates a continuous morphing between the two knots known as the Perko Pair. The red knot is "Perko A", the knot known as 10_161 in the Rolfsen table. The purple knot is "Perko B", the Knot Formerly Known As 10_162. The remaining knots are snapshots of a continuous morphing from Perko A to Perko B that shows that they are, in fact, the same knot. 

Each knot in the morph was extracted from KnotPlot, Laplacian thinned in Meshlab, Catmull-Clark remeshed in TopMod, and then arranged, scaled, and painted with color in Meshmixer.  For a tutorial on the "painting" step see my blog post Tutorial Tuesday 13: Painting Multicolor Models in Meshmixer.

Photo note: The book underneath the printed knot is Noboru Ito's wonderful new book Knot Projections.
