Reconstruction of theFonthill Down 27-06-2011 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

4. |
Divide the horizontal centerline of circle 1 into five equal parts. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle centered at the leftmost division node 4, tangent to the lefthand side of hexagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection, and passing through the lefthand intersection of circle 5 with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 7, pointing to the right. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 6 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, tangent to both lefthand sides of hexagon 3. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 five times, to the centers of circles 9. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 to the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 13 at the lower side. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the righthand intersection of the leftmost two circles 9. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 to the lower intersection of circle 14 and the vertical centerline, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own lefthand intersection with circle 14. | ||||

17. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the center of circle 16 and its righthand intersection with circle 14. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 17 to the center of circle 16. | ||||

19. |
Circles 1, 6, 9, 10, 11, 16 and 18, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

20. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Fonthill Down formation of 27-06-2011. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
