Reconstruction of theAll Cannings Bridge 6-05-2009 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct three more inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, pointing to the left, down and to the right, respectively. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the top of triangle 2, passing through the adjacent angular points of triangles 3. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 eleven times, to the other angular points of triangles 2 and 3. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the innermost mutual intersections of circles 4 and 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the righthand side of triangle 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the lefthand side. | ||||

10. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the end-points of a centerline), between the center of circle 6 and its upper intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

11. |
(In this and following steps, some results of previous steps are removed temporarily for clarity). Copy circle 10 to the intersection of circle 4 and the righthand side of triangle 2, and move it (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding (lower righthand) intersection. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 11. | ||||

13. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 12, with one angular point coincident with the center of circle 11. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 10 eleven times, to the other angular points of dodecagon 13. | ||||

15. |
Draw the connecting line between the centers of circles 1 and 11, and extend it up to circle 9. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 7 to the upper righthand intersection of circle 11 and line 15, and move it to its own lower lefthand intersection with line 15. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 16. | ||||

18. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 17, with one angular point coincident with the center of circle 16. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 7 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 18. | ||||

20. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the lower lefthand side. | ||||

21. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 20, pointing up. | ||||

22. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 21. | ||||

23. |
Circles 1, 4, 5, 9, 11, 14, 16, 19 and 22 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

24. |
Remove all unnecessary parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

25. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

26. |
...or to flattened plants, and finish the reconstruction of the All Cannings Bridge formation of 6-05-2009. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
