Can anyone understand this Math calculation?
Interlocked Mobius Rings
Not looking at the video.... It looks like the two bodies are supposed to be rotated 180 degrees out in order to interlock. However, since the bodies are identical (I'm guessing), you need to rotate and additional (or subtractional?) half a hole pitch. Otherwise, hole lines up with hole and you overlap instead of interlocking. Full hole pitch is 360/14. Half a hole pitch is half of this. 180 degrees minus half a hole pitch.
You could maybe avoid this by using an odd number of holes?
Just rounding/saving keystrokes
Still need that 1/2 * hole degree spacing to rotate the second ring no matter what the number of holes.
