Reconstruction of theOliver's Castle 24-04-2017 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 27-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing down. Number the angular points clockwise 1 - 27, starting from the top. | ||||

3. |
Draw ray nr. 6 of polygon 2 (from the center to angular point nr. 6). | ||||

4. |
Draw ray nr. 7 of polygon 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct a line from the intersection of line 3 and circle 1, perpendicular to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of lines 4 and 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a line from the intersection of line 3 and circle 6, perpendicular to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of lines 4 and 7, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 8, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side. | ||||

10. |
Copy circles 8 and 9 twenty-six times, to the corresponding positions with respect to the other angular points of polygon 2, as shown. | ||||

11. |
Circles 1, 6, 8, 9, and 10, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
