Reconstruction of theNursteed 11-08-2002 formation |
|||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 1 6 times to the end-points of the horizontal centerline, and to the 4 intersections these make with circle 1, to form a "flower of life"-pattern. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 3 6 times to the centers of circles 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to the rightmost circle 5, tangent to the leftmost circle 5 at the right side. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle with the end-points of its centerline coincident with the intersections of circles 1 and 3 and the vertical centerline of circle 1. Therefore, the diameter of this circle is equal to the distance between circles 1 and 3. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the upper side. | ||||

10. |
Draw 3 lines through the center of circle 1, each connecting two outer mutual intersections of circles 4. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 6 6 times to all intersections of lines 10 and circle 9. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 1 6 times to the centers of circles 11. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the lower side. | ||||

14. |
Only circles 4, 5, 9, 11, 12 and 13 are needed for the reconstruction. | ||||

15. |
Leave out all parts not used in the formation. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

16. |
Colour green all areas corresponding to standing crop... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

17. |
...or to flattened crop. This finishes the reconstruction of the Nursteed 11-08-2002 formation. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
