Reconstruction of theLittle Knoll 9-06-2017 formation | |||||

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

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

3. |
Draw the five diagonals of pentagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 3. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, passing through the lower righthand angular point of pentagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

7. |
Construct the circumscribed pentagon of circle 6, pointing up. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 6, pointing up. | ||||

9. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 five times, to the angular points of pentagon 2. | ||||

11. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of the upper circle 10 and the upper two diagonals 3, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to the upper circle 10, tangent to line 11. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 four times, to the centers of the other circles 10. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle tangent to the lower two diagonals 3, and tangent to circle 4 at the lower side. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the righthand side. | ||||

17. |
Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the lower intersections of the upper circle 10 and circle 12 with the vertical centerline. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 17 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 17 five times, to the centers of circles 10. | ||||

20. |
Construct five pairs of parallel lines, all tangent to circle 18, and each tangent to one of the circles 19, all at both sides, as shown. See detail. | ||||

21. |
Circles 1, 4, 10, 12, 13, and 16, pentagons 2, and 7, and lines 20, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
