Reconstruction of theJuggler's Lane 21-08-2005 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

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

4. |
Construct the circumscribed equilateral triangle of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of triangle 4. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 5 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and move this circle to the corresponding intersection of itself. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 1 to the center of circle 6. | ||||

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

10. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

11. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 10. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the lefthand intersection of circle 9 and the horizontal centerline, and move this circle to its own righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 12, pointing to the right. | ||||

14. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 7, pointing to the right. | ||||

15. |
Draw the six rays of hexagon 14, from the center to the angular points. | ||||

16. |
Copy hexagon 13 five times, from its position on the leftmost ray 15 to the corresponding positions on the other rays 15, as shown. | ||||

17. |
Copy hexagon 2, hexagon 13 and the two leftmost hexagons 16, as one set, from the center of hexagon 2 to the rightmost angular point of hexagon 14, as shown. | ||||

18. |
Copy the set of hexagons 17 five times, and divide the sets over the other angular points of hexagon 14 in a similar way, along the other rays 15 (six in total), as shown. | ||||

19. |
Hexagons 2, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 18, and rays 15, together make up the ingredients for the final reconstruction. | ||||

20. |
Remove all superfluous parts, not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

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

22. |
...or to flattened crop, completes the reconstruction of the Juggler's Lane formation of 21-08-2005. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
