Reconstruction of thePilgrim's Trail 12-07-2022 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 19-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower lefthand angular point of polygon 2, passing through the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 3 to the top of polygon 2. | ||||

5. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 4 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

6. |
Divide line 5 into twelve equal parts. Number the nodes 1 - 11 from top to bottom. | ||||

7. |
Construct six circles concentric to circle 1, passing through nodes 6 nrs. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. See detail. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 4, passing through node 6 nr. 4. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 two times, the first to the lefthand intersection of circles 1 and 4, the second to the righthand intersection of the first and circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 3 to the angular point of polygon 2 next to the top at the lefthand side. See detail. | ||||

11. |
Construct three circles concentric to circle 10, passing through the other intersections of circles 1 and 9. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 3 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 3 four times, the first to the upper intersection of circle 4 and the vertical centerline, the next ones to the corresponding intersections of every previous one. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 4, passing through node 6 nr. 5. See detail. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the upper intersection of the upper circle 13 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

16. |
Construct two circles concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at both sides. See detail. | ||||

17. |
Copy circles 10 and 11 fifteen times, to the other angular points of polygon 2, except for the top and the two lowest ones. | ||||

18. |
Circles 7, 10, 11, 12, 16, and 17, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
