the code I wrote for this project generates a continuous knotted non-intersecting tube on which I can apply texture, normal map, displacement map, with simple reflection and/or lighting

it was written in Delphi/Pascal and the renderer is also from personal code (no hardware acceleration) but I'm planning to switch to OpenGL


I would like to thank *Holophite and $Moonbeam13 for getting this DD

Wow and here I thought it was just a model with a moving texture added to it...looks like some really complex work is going on here!

seriously sick!( in a totally positive way.) This is how I imagine a 3d game of snake enclosed in a sphere would look like towards the end.
Pardon my possible ignorance, is this great work fractal, I'm old but I ain't dead yet!

It's not a fractal - I created it using simulation: some repulsive forces acting on particles that make up the "tube".
