Reconstruction of theHat Gate Cottage 11-07-2007 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 2 at the upper lefthand side. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circles 1 and 2, tangent to circle 3 at the righthand side. (Notice, that these first steps are identical to the first steps of the reconstruction of the Hailey Wood of 16-07-2007!) | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 4 at the lower righthand side. (This step also appears in the reconstruction of the Hailey Wood formation, as step 20). | ||||

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

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, passing through the lower intersection of circle 3 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 7 at the righthand side. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 5 to the righthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 9 at the righthand side. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 12 at the righthand side. | ||||

14. |
(Steps 14 through 25 are repetitions of steps 9, 10, 12 and 13). Copy circle 5. | ||||

15. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 11. | ||||

17. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 5. | ||||

19. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 11. | ||||

21. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 5. | ||||

23. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

24. |
Copy circle 11. | ||||

25. |
Circle concentric to circle 1. | ||||

26. |
Copy circle 11 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

27. |
Construct the inscribed hexagram of circle 26, by constructing two inscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing to the left, one to the right. | ||||

28. |
Extend all sides of hexagram 27 in both directions up to circle 23. | ||||

29. |
Circles 1, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23 and 25, and lines 28 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

30. |
Remove everything not present in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

31. |
Colour all areas with standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

32. |
...or with flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Hat Gate Cottage formation of 11-07-2007. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
