Reconstruction of theRoundway Down 11-06-2023 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Draw a line from the center of circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and divide this line into twenty-five equal parts. Number the division-nodes 1 - 24 from the center to the right. See detail. | ||||

3. |
Construct fourteen circles concentric to circle 1, passing through nodes 2 nrs. 5 - 17, and 21. | ||||

4. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between nodes 2 nrs. 22 and 23. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 5, with the sides horizontally and vertically. Draw the two diagonals between opposite angular points. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 1. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 four times, to the angular points of square 6. | ||||

9. |
Construct two pairs of lines, parallel to the diagonals of square 6, tangent to circles 8, at both sides, as shown. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, passing through node 2 nr. 22. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, passing through node 2 nr. 23. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline. Move this circle to its own corresponding intersection. | ||||

13. |
Copy circles 10 and 12 three times, to the corresponding positions with respect to the other sides of square 6. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 3, 10, 12, and 13, square 6, and lines 9, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
