Reconstruction of theCodford St Peter 3-06-2010 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular twelve-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 twelve times, to the angular points of dodecagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle passing through the first set of mutual intersections of circles 3 from the center of circle 1. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 4, sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 4, pointing to the right. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle, passing through the intersections of squares 5 and 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 7 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the righthand sides of square 6. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Draw the twelve rays of dodecagon 2, from the center of circle 1 to the angular points. Mark the upper righthand ray as "a", as shown. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of ray 10a and the upper side of square 5. | ||||

12. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 7, sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of ray 10a and the upper side of square 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 2. | ||||

15. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the righthand intersections of circles 1 and 14 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 15. | ||||

17. |
Copy circles 7, 9, 11 and 13 twelve times, to the intersections of circle 16 and rays 10. | ||||

18. |
Construct a "two-points" circle between the center of circle 8 and its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

19. |
Copy circles 15 and 18 twelve times, to the mutual intersections of circles 3 just outside circles 17, as shown. See also detail. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1, 7, 9, 14, 17 and 19, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

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

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

23. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Codford St Peter formation of 3-06-2010. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
