Reconstruction of the
Hackpen Hill (3) 29-07-2018 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed octagon (regular 8-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct a circle centered at the righthand angular point of octagon 2, passing through the top.

4. Copy circle 3 seven times, to the other angular points of octagon 2.

5. Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, tangent to circle 3 and the lefthand circle 4, both at the upper near sides.

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

7. Construct a circle centered at the top of octagon 2, tangent to circle 5 at the upper side.

8. Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 1.

9. Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the center of circle 1 and the upper intersection of the lower lefthand and righthand circles 4.

10. Copy circle 9 to the center of circle 1.

11. Construct the "two-points" circle between the center of circle 1, and the upper intersection of the lower and lower righthand circles 4.

12. Copy circle 11 to the center of circle 1.

13. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of the lower lefthand and righthand circles 4, tangent to circle 5 at the upper side.

14. Copy circle 13 to the center of circle 1.

15. Construct the "two-points" circle between the center of circle 1 and the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline.

16. Copy circle 15 to the center of circle 1.

17. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 16 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 14 at the upper side.

18. Copy circle 17 to the top of octagon 2.

19. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 18 at the upper side.

20. Construct the inscribed regular 58-sided polygon of circle 6, pointing up.

21. Draw the fifty-eight rays of circle 6, to the angular points of polygon 20.

22. Remove all parts from circles 6 and 8, and lines 21, such that the shown pattern remains.

23. Construct the inscribed regular 42-sided polygon of circle 10, pointing up.

24. Draw the forty-two rays of circle 10, to the angular points of polygon 23.

25. Remove all parts from circles 10 and 12, and lines 24, such that the shown pattern remains.

26. Construct the inscribed regular 30-sided polygon of circle 14, pointing up.

27. Draw the thirty rays of circle 14, to the angular points of polygon 26.

28. Remove all parts from circles 14 and 16, and lines 27, such that the shown pattern remains.

29. Circles 3, 4, and 19, and patterns 22, 25, and 28, are used for the final reconstruction.

30. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
