Reconstruction of theCoombe Abbey 5-07-2004 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Copy circle 1 six times, three to the left and three to the right, the first pair to the lefthand and righthand intersections of circle 1 with the horizontal centerline, the next pair to the corresponding intersections of the first pair, and so on, as shown. | ||||

3. |
Construct three circles concentric to circle 1, passing through the righthand intersections of consecutive circles 2 to the right with the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of the leftmost circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 two times, to the lefthand intersections of the other two circles 3 on the left and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Repeat steps 4 and 5, mirrored with respect to the vertical centerline, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Draw the connecting line between all lower mutual intersections of circles 1 and 2, and extend it to the left. | ||||

8. |
Construct a line from the center of circle 4, perpendicular to line 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 7 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the innermost circles 3 at the near sides. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the intersection of lines 7 and 8. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 1 to the center of circle 4. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 9 to the lefthand intersection of circles 10 and 11. | ||||

13. |
Circles 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 12 make up all necessary parts for the final reconstruction. | ||||
