Reconstruction of the2000 Bishop Cannings formation |
|||||

1. |
Draw a circle (the inner side of the ring). | ||||

2. |
Draw centerlines at 45°. | ||||

3. |
Construct two squares, one horizontal, one diagonal. | ||||

4. |
Draw eight circles, centered at the corners of the squares, and passing through the adjacent corners. | ||||

5. |
To determine the outer boundary of the ring, construct two larger squares through the corners of the smaller ones (of step 3), as shown. | ||||

6. |
Construct a large octagon (a regular eight-fold polygon) by connecting the corners of the larger squares. | ||||

7. |
Extend the four centerlines up to the sides of the large octagon. | ||||

8. |
From the endpoints of the centerlines, construct again an octagon, inscribed in the large one. | ||||

9. |
The outer border of the ring is formed by a circle, inscribed in the octagon of the previous step. | ||||

10. |
Removing all superfluous parts will yield the reconstruction of the 2000 Bishop Cannings formation. | ||||
