Reconstruction of theMilk Hill 17-06-2003 formation |
|||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 to the upper angular point of hexagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Repeat this for all other angular points of hexagon 2. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 1 to the upper intersection of circle 3 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

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

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 3 at the upper side. | ||||

8. |
Draw the connecting lines between intersections of circles 3 and 4, passing through the center of circle 1, 60° apart (as shown). Extend these up to circle 7. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 6 six times to the intersections of circle 7 with lines 8 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Draw connecting lines between intersections of circles 9 two apart (three times, as shown), and extend these until they meet to form an equilateral triangle pointing up. | ||||

11. |
Construct an equilateral triangle similar to triangle 10, but pointing down, using the three alternate connecting lines. | ||||

12. |
Construct an equilateral triangle, pointing up, similar to triangle 10, using connecting lines between corresponding intersections of circles 9 and circles 3 and 4, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Construct an equilateral triangle similar to triangle 12, but pointing down, using the alternate set of three connecting lines. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 6 to the left intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of circle 14 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 six times to the centers of circles 9. | ||||

17. |
Draw the connecting lines between the outer intersections of circles 16, passing through the center of circle 1, 60° apart, as shown. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 6 to the upper right intersection of triangles 10 and 11. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the lower intersection of circle 18 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 6 six times to the intersections of circle 19 and lines 17. | ||||

21. |
Draw the connecting line between the two intersections of circle 6 and lines 17 to the right. | ||||

22. |
Construct a circle with the center at the intersection of line 21 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 7 at the near side. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 22 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

24. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 22 at the far side. | ||||

25. |
Construct two inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 24, one pointing up, one pointing down. | ||||

26. |
Construct three pairs of lines at a short mutual distance (distance not constructed), parallel and symmetrical to lines 17, from angular points of triangle 12 to the opposite angular points of triangle 13, as shown. | ||||

27. |
Circles 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 15, 16, 20 and 23, triangles 10, 11, 12, 13 and 25, and lines 26 form the ingredients for the reconstruction. | ||||
