Reconstruction of theNormanton Down Barrows 14-07-2024 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

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

4. |
Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the upper righthand intersection of square 2 and circle 3 (tangent point) and the righthand angular point of square 2. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 four times, to the angular points of square 2. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 3 at the righthand side. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 four times, to the angular points of square 2. | ||||

8. |
Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersections of the righthand circles 5 and 7 with the horizontal centerline. Divide this line into three equal parts. .
An elegant way to divide a line into three equal parts: Use the line as the centerline of a circle, and construct the Vesica Pisces (two equal circles passing through each other's center), inscribed in this circle. The two resulting circles divide the (center)line into three equal parts! See detail | ||||

9. |
Construct two circles concentric to the righthand circle 5, passing through division nodes 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circles 9 three times, to the centers of the other circles 5. | ||||

11. |
Construct the "two-points" circle between the lefthand intersections of the righthand circle 7 and the inner circle 9 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the center of inner circle 9. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 12 at the lefthand side. | ||||

14. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 13, with horizontal and vertical sides. | ||||

15. |
Construct three circles centered at the righthand intersection of the righthand circle 7 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circles 9 and the righthand circle 5 at the righthand sides. | ||||

16. |
Copy circles 15 four times, to the angular points of square 14. | ||||

17. |
Construct three parallel lines, parallel to the upper side of square 14, tangent to the upper two sets of circles 16 at the upper sides, as shown. | ||||

18. |
Repeat step 17 three times, with respect to the other sides of square 14 and corresponding sets of circles 16, as shown. | ||||

19. |
Circles 5, 7, 9, 10, and 16, square 14, and lines 17, and 18, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
