User Suggested Knots

We are constantly asked to add new knots to our knot apps.  We certainly consider all suggestions and try to accommodate them into the app if it makes sense.  We have already implemented several dozen user suggested knots into the app.  The following are outstanding requests that may possibly be added to Knots 3D in a future release.  Feel free to suggest your favorite knot or second a motion for one listed below!  Submit knot requests to http://nynix.com/support/.  Drawing and animating each knot is time intensive so it may take months before your favorite knot is part of Knots 3D.  Thanks for your patience!  We try to release an update every 6 months with new knots and/or functionality.
