Reconstruction of theAndechs Abbey (Germany) 29-07-2012 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. Number the angular points clockwise, from the top, 1 - 12. | ||||

3. |
Draw the diagonals of dodecagon 2 from every angular point to every fifth angular point. | ||||

4. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between angular points 1 and 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular six-sided polygon) of circle 4, with one angular point coincident with an angular point of dodecagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the outer angular points of hexagon 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle passing through the set of innermost intersections of diagonals 3. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 7, pointing up. | ||||

9. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Draw a line from the center of circle 1 to the intersection of diagonals (between angular points) 2-7 and 3-10. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 10 and diagonal 5-12, tangent to circle 9 at the near side. See detail. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 two times, to angular points nrs. 5 and 12 of dodecagon 2. | ||||

13. |
Construct a line parallel to diagonal 5-12, tangent to circles 12 at the lower lefthand sides. | ||||

14. |
Repeat step 13 eleven times, with respect to the other eleven diagonals 3. | ||||

15. |
Draw diagonal 1-9. | ||||

16. |
Draw the eleven other corresponding diagonals. | ||||

17. |
Draw diagonal 1-10. | ||||

18. |
Draw the eleven other corresponding diagonals. | ||||

19. |
Draw a line from angular point nr. 1 to the intersection of diagonals 2-7 and 4-11. | ||||

20. |
Draw a line from angular point nr. 1 to the intersection of diagonals 2-7 and 3-11. | ||||

21. |
Repeat steps 19 and 20 eleven times, with respect to the other eleven angular points of dodecagon 2. | ||||

22. |
Circles 1 and 6, and lines 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

23. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

24. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

25. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Andechs Abbey formation of 29-07-2012. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
