Reconstruction of theHackpen Hill 30-05-2011 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 18-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the top and the next angular point to the right of polygon 2. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 3 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the top of triangle 5, tangent to circle 4 at the upper side. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 to the lower lefthand angular point of triangle 5. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 6 to the lower righthand angular point of triangle 5. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 3 to the righthand intersection of circles 1 and 6 (call this point "A"). Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own upper lefthand intersection with circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 3 to the upper intersection of circles 1 and 7 (call this point "B"). Move this circle to its own lower intersection with circle 1. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper lefthand intersection of circles 1 and 9, passing through point A. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circles 1 and 10, passing through point B. | ||||

13. |
Construct a "two-points" circle between the lefthand intersections of circles 9 and 11 with circle 1. | ||||

14. |
Draw the connecting line between the centers of circles 1 and 13, and extend this line up to the opposite side of circle 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 1 and line 14, passing through point A. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 to point B, and move this circle to its own lower intersection with circle 1. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of circles 1 and 11, passing through point A. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circles 1 and 12, passing through point B. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of circle 17 and the righthand side of triangle 5. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 19 to the center of circle 8. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 17 and the righthand side of triangle 5, tangent to circle 6 at the near side. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 21 to point A. | ||||

23. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 11, tangent to circle 22 at the lefthand side. | ||||

24. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 15, tangent to circle 22 at the lefthand side. | ||||

25. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 17, tangent to circle 22 at the lefthand side. | ||||

26. |
Circles 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 23, 24 and 25, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

27. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

28. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

29. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Hackpen Hill formation of 30-05-2011. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
