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

2. |

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

4. |
Construct the inscribed heptagon of circle 3, pointing down. | ||||

5. |
Draw the outer set of diagonals of heptagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed circle of the heptagon enclosed by diagonals 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct the inscribed heptagon of circle 6, pointing up. | ||||

8. |
Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the outer lefthand and righthand angular points of heptagon 7. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed heptagon of circle 9, pointing up. | ||||

11. |
Draw the inner set of diagonals of heptagon 10. | ||||

12. |
Draw two lines, from the lower angular point of heptagon 4, to the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of heptagon 10. | ||||

13. |
Repeat step 12 six times, with respect to the other angular points of heptagon 4 and the corresponding angular points of heptagon 10, as shown. | ||||

14. |
Draw two lines, from the lower angular point of heptagon 4, to the lower lefthand and righthand angular points of heptagon 10. | ||||

15. |
Repeat step 14 six times, with respect to the other angular points of heptagon 4 and the corresponding angular points of heptagon 10, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Construct the "two-points" circle between the upper intersections of circles 6 and 9 with the vertical centerline. | ||||

17. |
Repeat step 16 six times, with respect to the other angular points of heptagon 10. | ||||

18. |
Construct two lines, parallel to two diagonals 11, tangent to circle 16 and the lower circles 17 at the outer sides. See detail. | ||||

19. |
Repeat step 18 six times, with respect to the other corresponding pairs of diagonals 11, as shown. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1, 3, 6, and 9, and lines 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, and 19, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
