Reconstruction of theWinterbourne Monkton 23-05-2007 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of (the inscribed circle of) pentagon 4, pointing down. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 5. | ||||

7. |
Draw the diagonal of pentagon 2, from the top to the lower lefthand angular point. | ||||

8. |
Draw the diagonal of pentagon 2, from the top to the lower righthand angular point. | ||||

9. |
Finish the inscribed pentagram of pentagon 2 by drawing the other diagonals. | ||||

10. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the enclosed pentagon of pentagram 7-8-9. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the righthand side. Move it (copy and delete original) to the intersection of line 7 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 11 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 13 at the righthand side. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 10 to the righthand intersection of circle 13 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the righthand side. Move it to the intersection of line 8 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 15 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 17 at the righthand side. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 17. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 19 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 20 at the righthand side. Move it to the intersection of line 7 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 20 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

23. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 22 at the righthand side. | ||||

24. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 22. Move it to its own righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

25. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 24 at the righthand side. | ||||

26. |
Only circles 1, 3, 6, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23 and 25 are needed for the final reconstruction. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
