Reconstruction of theChute Causeway 10-08-2013 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular six-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Draw the two upper rays of hexagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed circle of the triangle formed by the two rays 3 and the upper side of hexagon 2. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to its upper intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

6. |
Draw two lines from the center of circle 1 to the intersections of circles 4 and 5, and extend these lines upto the upper side of hexagon 2. Call the righthand intersection with this side point A and the lefthand one point B. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through A. | ||||

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

9. |
Draw two lines, from A to the lower lefthand, and from B to the lower righthand angular points of hexagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of lines 9. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the upper righthand side of hexagon 8 and line 9, tangent to the upper side of hexagon 2. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the intersection of lines 9. | ||||

13. |
Draw the connecting line between the leftmost intersections of circle 7 and the lefthand sides of hexagon 2. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 13 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 7 at the near side. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the center of circle 12. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the lower side. | ||||

17. |
Remove all redundant parts from lines 6 and 9, and from circles 10, 12 and 16, such that the shown pattern remains. | ||||

18. |
Copy this pattern (repeat all necessary steps) five times, from the top of hexagon 8 to the other angular points, while rotating around the center. | ||||

19. |
Circle 1, and patterns 17 and 18, together make up the final reconstruction. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

20. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Chute Causeway formation of 10-08-2013. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
