Reconstruction of theSompting 3-06-2002 formation |
|||||

1. |
Draw a square. | ||||

2. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 1. Draw the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

3. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of square 1. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed hexadecagon (regular 16-sided polygon) of circle 2. Number the angular points counterclockwise, starting from the rightmost angular point with nr. 0. | ||||

7. |
Draw the connecting line between angular points nr. 1 and nr. 12 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to line 7. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 3 to angular point nr. 0 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 3 to angular point nr. 8 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 3 to angular point nr. 15 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 3 to angular point nr. 7 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

13. |
Draw the connecting line between angular points nr. 3 and nr. 12 of hexadecagon 6. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to line 13. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 twice, to the outermost intersections of circles 9 and 11 and of circles 10 and 12. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 14 another two times, to the lower intersection of circle 9 and rightmost circle 15, and to the upper intersection of circle 10 and leftmost circle 15. | ||||

17. |
Only circles 2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 16 are needed for the reconstruction. | ||||

18. |
Leave out all parts not visible in the formation. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

19. |
Colour green all areas corresponding to flattened crop. This finishes the reconstruction of the Sompting 3-06-2002 formation. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
