Reconstruction of theKnoll Down 1-06-2009 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the end-points of a centerline) between the center of circle 1 and its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 2 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

4. |
Construct a "two-points" circle between the lefthand intersections of circles 1 and 3 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 4 three times, to the other intersections of circle 1 with the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 5 at the lefthand side. | ||||

8. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 7, sides horizontal and vertical. | ||||

9. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of square 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 9 at the lefthand side. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 10 at the righthand side. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 10 at the righthand side. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 three times, to the centers of circles 6. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 1 four times, to the outer mutual intersections of circles 12 and 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 10 at the lefthand side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 three times, to the centers of circles 6. | ||||

17. |
Circles 3, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 are used for the final steps. | ||||

18. |
Remove all redundant parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

19. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

20. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Knoll Down formation of 1-06-2009. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
