Reconstruction of theWindmill Hill (3) 22-06-2003 formation |
|||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle centered at the top angular point of pentagon 2, passing through its bottom two angular points. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 3 four times, to the remaining angular points of pentagon 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 1 at the lower side. | ||||

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

7. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 2. | ||||

8. |
Draw the five diagonals of pentagon 2, to form the inscribed pentagram. | ||||

9. |
From the center of circle 1, draw the five rays of pentagon 2, to its angular points. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the upper (horizontal) diagonal 8 and upper (vertical) ray 9, tangent to circle 7 at the upper side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 four times, to the remaining (inner) intersections of diagonals 8 and rays 9. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual (inner) intersections of diagonals 8. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of upper ray 9 and circle 12, tangent to circle 12 at the lower side (passing through the lower (inner) intersection of diagonals 8). | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 four times, to the remaining intersections of rays 9 and circle 12. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower (inner) intersection of diagonals 8, passing through the upper intersection of the lower two circles 14. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper angular point of pentagon 2, tangent to circle 15 at the lower side. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 16 at the upper side. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 13, 14 and 17 make up the necessary ingredients for the reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
Leave out the relevant parts, not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
