Reconstruction of the
2001 Folly Barn formation
|1.||Construct an equilateral triangle, pointing downwards.|
|2.||Construct the inscribed circle of the triangle.|
|3.||For each of the triangle's angular points, construct a circle with its center at that point, passing through the other angular points.|
|4.||Draw the three rays from the center of the inscribed circle 2 (the central point of the formation) to the angular points of the triangle.|
|5.||Construct a circle with its center at the intersection of a ray and the inscribed circle 2, passing through the opposite angular points of the triangle, as shown. |
Repeat this two more times for the intersections with the other rays.
|6.||Construct a circle concentric to a circle 3, tangent to circle 5 (at the far end), as shown. |
Repeat this two more times for the other circles 3 (and 5).
|7.||Construct a circle with its center at the central point of the formation, tangent to circles 6 at the outer sides, as shown.|
|8.||Construct a circle concentric with a circle 5, tangent to a circle 3 at the near end, as shown. |
Repeat this two more times for the other circles 5 (and 3).
|9.||Construct a circle with its diameter equal to the distance between circles 5 and 8, and copy this circle to the center of the formation.|
|10.||Circles 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 together form the ingredients for the reconstruction.|
|11.||Leaving out all unnecessary parts and making black relevant areas completes the reconstruction of the 2001 Folly Barn formation. Black denotes standing crop.|
