Reconstruction of theLiddington Castle 23-08-2008 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing down. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the mid-point of the lower side of triangle 3, tangent to both lower sides of triangle 2. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 six times, to the six mutual intersections of triangles 2 and 3. | ||||

6. |
Draw the connecting line between the lower intersection of the upper righthand circle 5 and the righthand side of triangle 3, and the upper intersection of the lower righthand circle 5 and the righthand side of triangle 2. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, tangent to both lower circles 5 at the upper sides. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 8 three times, to the angular points of triangle 3. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual intersections of circles 8, 9 and 10. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 8, tangent to circle 11 at the lower side. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 two times, to the centers of circles 9. | ||||

14. |
Triangles 2 and 3, and circles 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

15. |
Remove all parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

16. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

17. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Liddington Castle formation of 23-08-2008. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
