Reconstruction of theNew Barn 11-07-2006 formation | |||||

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

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

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

4. |
Copy circle 3 to the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. Move it (copy and delete original) to its own lefthand intersection. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 1 to the lefthand intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline. Move it to its own lefthand intersection. | ||||

6. |
Repeat steps 4 and 5 two times, with respect to each last copied (and moved) circle, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Construct five circles, all centered on the horizontal centerline, all tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side, and tangent to circle 5 and successive circles 6 at the righthand sides. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and move this circle to its own righthand intersection. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 3 to the center of circle 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 1 to the righthand intersection of circle 9 and the horizontal centerline, and move this circle to its own righthand intersection. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 3 to the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline, and move this circle to its own righthand intersection. | ||||

12. |
Repeat steps 10 and 11 two times, with respect to each last copied (and moved) circle, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to leftmost circle 6, and tangent to circle 9, both at the lefthand side. See detail. | ||||

14. |
Construct seven circles, all centered on the horizontal centerline, all tangent to leftmost circle 6 at the lefthand side, and tangent to circles 9, 10, 11 and successive circles 12, all at the righthand sides, as shown. | ||||

15. |
Copy circles 1, 4, 5 and 6, treating them as one unity, from the righthand intersection of circle 1, to the lefthand intersection of leftmost circle 6, both with the horizontal centerline, as shown. See also detail. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 13, tangent to the leftmost circle 15 at the lefthand side. | ||||

17. |
Construct six circles, all centered on the horizontal centerline, all tangent to circle 16 at the righthand side, and tangent to successive circles 15, except for the leftmost circle, at the lefthand sides, as shown. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 7, 13, 14, 16 and 17 make up all the constituents for the reconstruction. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
