Reconstruction of theAmmersee (D) 18-07-2014 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 3, pointing down. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 3 to the lower angular point of triangle 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed regular 24-sided polygon of circle 3, pointing down. Number the angular points counterclockwise 1 - 24, starting with the lowest. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through angular point 6 nr. 4. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 two times, to the lefthand and righthand angular points of triangle 4. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to the righthand circle 8 at the lower lefthand side. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through angular point 6 nr. 3. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through angular point 6 nr. 2. | ||||

12. |
Copy circles 9, 10 and 11 two times, to the centers of circles 8. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 5 twentythree times, to angular points 6 nrs. 2 - 24. | ||||

14. |
Construct the circumscribed octagon (regular 8-sided polygon) of circle 1, with the midpoint of a side at the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of octagon 14. | ||||

16. |
Circles 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
