Reconstruction of theManton House 22-06-2007 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the end-points of a centerline), defined by the righthand intersections of circles 1 and 3 with the horizontal centerline. See detail. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | ||||

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

7. |
Construct the inscribed six-pointed star of circle 1, by constructing two inscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one down. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 4 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand mutual intersection of triangles 7, tangent to circle 8 at the righthand side. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, tangent to circle 8 at the lefthand side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circles 9 and 10 each five times, to the other mutual intersections of triangles 7. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side, and tangent to both triangles 7 at the near sides, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11 and 13 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

15. |
Remove all parts not present in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

16. |
Colour all areas with standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

17. |
...or with flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Manton House formation of 22-06-2007. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
