Reconstruction of the
All 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.
