Reconstruction of theUfton 25-06-2010 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 2 at the lefthand side. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 2 to the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

5. |
Construct four inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, one pointing up, one down, one to the left, one to the right. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, with the midpoint of one side coincident with the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 6. | ||||

8. |
Draw the twelve rays of dodecagon 6, from the center of circle 1 to the angular points. | ||||

9. |
Construct two inscribed hexagons (regular 6-sided polygons) of circle 3, one with an angular point at the upper lefthand ray 8, the other at the upper righthand ray 8, as shown. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual intersections of hexagons 9. | ||||

11. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 10, pointing up. | ||||

12. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 11. | ||||

13. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the lefthand intersections of circles 1 and 7 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 to the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to circle 14 at the lefthand side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 13 to the righthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

17. |
Construct two circles concentric to circle 4, tangent to circle 16 at both sides. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 2 twelve times, to the intersections of circle 1 and rays 8. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 2 ten times, to the other angular points of triangles 5, except for the leftmost one. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1, 2, 3, 7, 12, 15, 17, 18 and 19, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

21. |
Remove all parts not visible within 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 Ufton formation of 25-06-2010. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
