Reconstruction of theThe Ridgeway 14-04-2009 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, sides horizontal and vertical. | ||||

3. |
Draw a half diagonal of square 2, from the center of circle 1 to the upper righthand angular point. | ||||

4. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the end-points of a centerline), between the center of circle 1 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle, tangent to line 3, tangent to circle 5 at the lefthand side, and tangent to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 to the center of circle 5. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 7 at the lefthand side. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 9 at the righthand side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 three times, the first to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, the second and third to the corresponding intersections of each last copied circle, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Construct three circles, all concentric to circle 1, passing through the centers of circles 11. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 4 three times, to the centers of circles 11. | ||||

14. |
Construct four circles, all concentric to circle 1, passing through the righthand intersections of circles 5 and 13 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 4 to the righthand intersection of the rightmost circle 11 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |
Construct four circles, all concentric to circle 1, passing through the lefthand intersections of circles 13 and 15 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 6 three times, to the righthand intersections of circles 13 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

18. |
Construct four circles, all concentric to circle 1, passing through the lefthand intersections of circles 9 and 17 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

19. |
Draw two connecting lines, between the lefthand and righthand intersections of the outer circle 18 with the horizontal centerline, and between its upper and lower intersections with the vertical centerline. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1, 8, 12, 14, 16 and 18, and lines 19 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

21. |
Remove all redundant parts, not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

23. |
...or to flattened plants. This will finish the reconstruction of the The Ridgeway formation of 14-04-2009. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
