Computer-graphics-made images of knots

   See the attached picture, for a nice image of a braided rope.
   ( A braided rope is a knot - albeit a looong one... :))

  We want to see tightened "knots", not loose, diagram-like ones...That is, a "knot" that would look like a model /a simulation of the real thing - and the real thing is the set, dressed and tightened knot.
This is not a knot.

By chance, I happened to find this site yesterday. 

I'm particularly interested in these spheres...
