Reconstruction of theWilton Windmill 7-08-2004 | |||||

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

2. |
Create the inscribed regular six-pointed star of circle 1, by constructing two inscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down. | ||||

3. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) enclosed by triangles 2. | ||||

4. |
Create the circumscribed regular six-pointed star of circle 1, by constructing two circumscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of star (triangles) 4. | ||||

6. |
Extend all sides of triangles 2 in both directions up to circle 5, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Draw the connecting line between the two intersections of circle 5 and lines 6, immediately to the right of the vertical centerline, as shown. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to line 7, and tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered on the vertical centerline, tangent to circles 1 and 3, both at the lower side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 twelve times, to all intersections of circle 5 and lines 6. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 3 on the right, and tangent to circle 8 on the left. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 12 three times, centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to each other, and the righthand one tangent to circle 13 on the left, as shown. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 13, tangent to the rightmost circle 14 at the lefthand side. | ||||

16. |
Construct two circles concentric to circle 13, tangent to the other two circles 14 at the lefthand side. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 13 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 13 at the lefthand side. | ||||

18. |
Construct three circles concentric to circle 17, tangent to circles 14 at the lefthand sides, as shown. | ||||

19. |
Circles, triangles and lines 2, 5, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17 and 18 make up the necessary parts for the final reconstruction. | ||||

20. |
Leave out all parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
...or to flattened crop. This will conclude the reconstruction of the Wilton Windmill formation of 7-08-2004. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
