11. |
Copy circle 10 to the intersection of the upper side of triangle 2 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

12. |

16. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 4. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circles 4 and 5, tangent to circle 16 at the upper side. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 17 two times, to the lower intersections of circle 3 with circles 4 and 5. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle passing through the inner intersections of circles 14 and 15, as shown. | ||||

20. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 19, pointing up. | ||||

21. |

24. |
Copy circle 23 two times, to the centers of circles 3 and 5. | ||||

25. |
Circles 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 23 and 24 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

28. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

29. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

30. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Hannington formation of 7-05-2011. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
