Reconstruction of the2000 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. | ||||
