Reconstruction of the
2000 South Field formation
|1.||Start with drawing a circle.|
|2.||Draw eight centerlines at mutual angles of 22.5°.|
|3.||From the endpoints of the centerlines, draw diagonals to form a sharp 16-pointed star.|
|4.||Draw a circle, concentric to the large one, with a radius determined by the points at which diagonals cross at right angles, as shown.|
|5.||Draw eight circles, centered at the cross-points of the previous circle and eight "spokes" in an alternate way. These circles have common cross-points at the same circle and the other spokes in between.|
|6.||Draw a circle, again concentric, touching the eight previous circles at the inner side.|
Draw 16 circles of the same size, centered at the endpoints of all spokes.
|7.||Draw a help line, also a "spoke", equally spaced between two existing spokes.|
|8.||Centered at the endpoint of this help line, construct a small circle, going through the cross-points of the two neighbouring circles and the large circle of step 1.|
Draw an equally sized small circle at the endpoint of a spoke, concentric to a same neighbouring circle.
|9.||Draw two spokes up to the cross-points of the last small circle and the large circle.|
|10.||Repeat this for all 16 circles.|
|11.||Construct a 16-pointed star by connecting the endpoints of all spokes with every second spoke and extending these lines until they meet, as shown.|
|12.||The outer border is a circle concentric to the one of step 1, and passing through the points of the 16-pointed star of the previous step.|
|13.||All necessary parts have now been constructed.|
|14.||After removing all superfluous parts, the reconstruction of the 2000 South Field formation shows up.|
