Reconstruction of the2001 Browns Lane formation |
|||||

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

2. |
Divide the circumference of circle 1 into 16 equal parts and draw the rays. | ||||

3. |
Draw the diagonal connecting the end-point of the horizontal centerline on the right with the end-point of the ray one above the horizontal centerline on the left. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1 tangent to diagonal 3. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 1 to the intersection on the left of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1 tangent to circle 5 at the near side. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 1 four times to the intersections of the horizontal and vertical centerlines and circle 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1 passing through the intersections of circles 7. | ||||

9. |
Clip off all parts of circles 7 outside circle 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 1 four times to the intersections of the horizontal and vertical centerlines and circle 8. | ||||

11. |
Clip off all parts of circles 10 outside circle 6 (at exactly their mutual intersections). | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1 tangent to (the remainders of) circles 10 at the inner sides. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 1 four times to the intersections of the horizontal and vertical centerlines and circle 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1 passing through the intersections of circles 13. | ||||

15. |
Clip off all parts of circles 13 outside circle 14. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle with its center on the horizontal centerline on the right tangent to circles 4 (outside) and 12 (inside), as shown. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 16 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14 and 17 and arcs 9, 11 and 15 together form all necessary parts for the reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
Removing all parts not present finally, and making black all areas corresponding to standing crop, finishes the reconstruction of the 2001 Browns Lane formation. | ||||
