Sadly, only for Windows and Mac, and it will knock you back a hefty ?100.

Houdini Apprentice is free. You don't need to understand everything about this complicated program. Just add a curve (change its type to "bezier") and after that add a sweep node. The current version allows you to specify the cross section is a circle. This is a very easy way to create a 3D knot.

Optimal geometry.
One segment repeated many times.

All the stuff i do is in 2D w/layers of some convoluted, process i made up.
>>But do able
Many, open source 3d modeling for drawings, animation, autocad knock offs etc.  Many draw pipes etc.
>>always a hefty l-earning curve of their own
>>i end up crawling back to what i think i know!
