18. |
Copy both lefthand sides of all hexagons 6, 8 and 11 as a whole, from the lefthand angular point of hexagon 6 to the righthand intersection of circle 17 and the horizontal diagonal 3 (and trim off all parts outside hexagon 6). | ||||

19. |
Copy the set of lines 18 as a whole two times, to corresponding intersections of circle 17 and the other diagonals, while rotating about its center over 120° and 240° respectively, as shown. | ||||

20. |
Extend the six lines 18 and 19 nearest to the center of circle 1 up to the opposite side of hexagon 15, as shown. | ||||

34. |
Copy circles 32 and 33 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 29. | ||||

35. |
Hexagons 2, 6, 8, 11, 15, 24, 29 and 31, lines 18, 19 and 20, and circles 32, 33 and 34, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
