Reconstruction of theMartinsell Hill 19-07-2007 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 18-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up. Number the angular points 1 - 18 counterclockwise, starting at the rightmost one just above the horizontal centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and through the angular points of polygon 2, nos. 3 and 8. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and through the angular points of polygon 2, nos. 4 and 17. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and through the angular points of polygon 2, nos. 2 and 7. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and through the angular points of polygon 2, nos. 6 and 11. | ||||

7. |
Construct all other forteen circles, passing through the center of circle 1, and through every two angular points of polygon 2 five apart. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, through the third set from the center of mutual intersections of circles 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, through the second set from the center of mutual intersections of circles 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, through the first set from the center of mutual intersections of circles 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. | ||||

11. |
Draw the connecting line between the upper intersections of circles 3 and 4, and circles 5 and 6. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 11. | ||||

13. |
Circles 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

14. |
Remove all superfluous parts not present in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

15. |
Colour all areas with standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

16. |
...or flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Martinsell Hill formation of 19-07-2007. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
