## Moebius Strip pendant

The Moebius Strip is a mathematical classic, and even for rings it has been used for many decades at least. Our version of the Moebius Strip pendant, however, is special. Its shape is defined by a mathematical formula!

This space curve in a cube with projections (1b) is a math classic. Use a torch to compare the projections of the space curve (in the center) on a plane with the 3d-printed ones.

A trefoil knot is the simplest non-trivial mathematical knot. It has been known for thousands of years.

The photo shows a smoothed Kummer surface in steel (inflated with bronze). This post also features links to plastic versions of this shape. The Kummer surface is a classic from the 19th century; our model is a smoothed version of it.
