Reconstruction of the
Knoll Down 13-08-2011 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 hexagon of circle 1, pointing up.

4. Construct a circle centered at the rightmost angular point of hexagon 2, passing through the upper righthand angular point of hexagon 3.

5. Copy circle 4 to the lower righthand angular point of hexagon 2.

6. Copy circle 4 another four times, to the other angular points of hexagon 2.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 4 at the lefthand side.

8. Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 4.

9. Copy circle 7 another five times, to the centers of circles 5 and 6.

10. Copy circle 4 to the center of circle 1.

11. Construct a circle centered at the lower righthand angular point of hexagon 3, tangent to circle 8 at the nearest side.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the lefthand side.

13. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 7, pointing down.

14. Construct a circle concentric to circle 11, tangent to the rigthand side of triangle 13.

15. Copy circle 14 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 3.

16. Draw the connecting line between the centers of circles 1 and 11.

17. Copy circle 11 to the intersection of line 16 and the righthand side of triangle 13.

18. Construct a circle concentric to circle 14, tangent to circle 17 at the righthand side.

19. Copy circle 18 five times, to the centers of circles 15.

20. Construct a circle centered at the lower lefthand intersection of circles 5 and 10, passing through the upper lefthand intersection of circles 8 and 18. See detail.

21. Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 10, with one angular point at the center of circle 20.

22. Copy circle 20 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 21.

23. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the righthand side of hexagon 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side.

24. Copy circle 23 to the center of circle 1.

25. Circles 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 22 and 24, are used for the final reconstruction.

26. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
