Reconstruction of theYarnbury Castle 24-06-2018 formation | |||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw 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. |
Construct a circle centered at the uppermost righthand intersection of hexagons 2 and 3, tangent to circle 1 at the near side. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 4 at the lower side. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 5, pointing up. | ||||

7. |
Draw six rays of circle 1, to the angular points of hexagon 2. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of hexagons 2 and 3. | ||||

9. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of the upper righthand ray 7 with hexagon 3 and circle 8. See detail. | ||||

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

11. |
Construct a line, parallel to the upper righthand ray 7, tangent to circles 9 and 10 at the upper lefthand sides. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle inside hexagon 6, tangent to its upper sides, and tangent to line 11. | ||||

13. |
Repeat step 12 (and all necessary previous steps) five times, with respect to the other angular points of hexagon 6, as shown. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of the two righthand circles 13, tangent to circle 12 at the near side. See detail. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 six times, to the angular points of hexagon 2. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 9 six times, to the centers of circles 15. | ||||

17. |
Construct 3 pairs of parallel lines, parallel to rays 7, tangent to circles 16 at both sides. | ||||

18. |
Circles 12, 13, and 15, hexagon 6, and lines 17, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
