Overhand Knot
Wings3D offers us four different kind of knots, but none of them is the simplest and most used.

Here is my version of how to do it:



A slight variation in the degrees for every rotations in the initial steps define how tight the knot is:

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
I was able to make an overhand knot directly from the simplest wings knot.

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
Cool. Put the steps here.
That is the goal for "How To" threads - share different approaches. Wink

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
Step 1) Pick basic wings torus knot.
Step 2) LOOK into it to see the overhand knot.
Step 3) Cut away the parts that you don't want in your overhand knot.
Step 4) Extrude the two tethers or strings coming out of the knot.
Step 5) Select edge rings and make them fatter for tight knot.

Add a step 3b) If you want to re-align a few edge loops as you extrude.

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
Sight, but we need some tweak in order to get a tight knot with a minimum of overlapping faces:
the bottom images were after apply edge loop/edge ring and scale uniform to make the "rope" thick and get the knot tight.

Please, correct me if I did the wrong steps. Pictures/videos are welcome to "How To" threads (mandatory should be the word).

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
Seems like you picked a bad place to cut your knot before extrude. I would offer that maybe a careful magnet move via the extruded edges might recenter then to avoid unwanted overlaps. Don't have time to share more than words today.

So, please, show us.
The "How To" is to teach. Words like that don't help.

RE: How To: Overhand Knot
I'm advocating that the end user may not care too much about either a little gap space ... or ... a little overlap. My How to was listed in 5 steps ... which DO HELP.
