Seemingly Unnamed Toroid(?) Structure


Recommended Posts

That's a Torus in four dimensions, i think.

No, I'm pretty sure it's not. Here's a little more information on the 4D equivalent of a torus.

If so, then I think it's a Klein bottle. :lightbulb

The shape displayed above is most certainly not a Klein bottle, although it likely could be given the correct translation function.

There exist several forms of Klein bottles as explained at link. Whether the torus in OP IS a Klein bottle or not, it looks like one variation as below from the link.

Very, very interesting... I wouldn't be eager call this shape a type of Klein bottle, given that, as is detailed in the information you've sent me, the shape is translated from one half of a symmetrical Klein bottle. However, I am incommunicably fascinated by a Klein bottle's ability to become a Mobius strip, and then by extent this strange mystery shape, so I thank you for introducing me to this information.

Additionally, it is hard to say this shape is the same, as the OP is completely circular, whereas this one is not quite. But perhaps it is close enough, we shall see.

You're welcome. :)

My first impression when you posted was an inflated Möbius strip. Thanks for an interesting diversion in any regard. :turtle:
