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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

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

4. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 3 to the upper righthand angular point of hexagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 3 to the upper lefthand angular point of hexagon 4. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 3 to the lower angular point of hexagon 4. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle tangent to the upper lefthand and righthand sides of hexagon 2, and tangent to circle 5. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through the upper righthand intersection of hexagon 2 and circle 9. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 two times, to the centers of circles 6 and 7. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered at the top of hexagon 4, tangent to the upper sides of hexagon 2. | ||||

13. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 12, pointing up. | ||||

14. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 14 at the lower side. | ||||

16. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 15, pointing up. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower angular point of hexagon 16, passing through its upper righthand angular point. | ||||

18. |
Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and the upper intersection of circle 17 and the vertical centerline. Divide this line into six equal parts. | ||||

19. |
Construct a (very small) circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the upper righthand side of hexagon 2. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 19 five times, to the upper intersection of circle 17 and the vertical centerline, and to the upper four division nodes 18. | ||||

21. |
Construct five pairs of circles concentric to circle 17, tangent to circles 20 at both sides. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 19 to the center of circle 1, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own upper intersection with the vertical centerline. See detail. | ||||

23. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 7, tangent to circle 22 at the upper side. | ||||

24. |
Repeat all necessary steps to copy and rotate circles 20 and 23, together, two times, with respect to the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of hexagon 16. | ||||

25. |
Circles 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, 21, 23, and 24, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
