Reconstruction of theBelmore Lane 11-06-2019 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct two inscribed squares of circle 1, one pointing to the right, one with horizontal and vertical sides. | ||||

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

4. |
Draw eight rays of circle 1 from its center to the angular points of squares 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of circles 1 and 3 and the upper righthand ray 4. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

7. |
Construct a "two-points" circle between the righthand intersections of circles 1 and 6 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 7. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed octagon (regular 8-sided polygon) of circle 9, pointing to the right. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 7 seven times, to the other angular points of octagon 10. Number these circles counterclockwise 1 - 7, starting at the upper righthand one. | ||||

12. |
Draw four pairs of parallel lines, one pair between the righthand intersections of circles 11 nrs. 1 and 7 and the lefthand intersections of circles 11 nrs. 3 and 5, with circle 9. The other three pairs between corresponding intersections of circles 7 and 11 with circle 9. See detail. | ||||

13. |
Draw a line, tangent to circles 11 nrs. 1 and 3, at the upper sides. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 14, pointing to the right. | ||||

16. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of square 15. | ||||

17. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 16, pointing to the right. | ||||

18. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of square 17. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 5 to the intersection (tangent point) of circle 7 and the upper righthand side of square 15. | ||||

20. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 19 at the far side. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the righthand intersection of circles 11 nrs. 1 and 7. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 21 to the righthand angular point of square 15. | ||||

23. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 22 at the righthand side. | ||||

24. |
Circles 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 18, 20, and 23, and lines 4, and 12, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
