Reconstruction of theNun's Walk 4-08-2019 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, with horizontal and vertical sides. | ||||

3. |
Construct four inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, each pointing to one of the angular points of square 2. | ||||

4. |
Draw twelve rays of circle 1, to the angular points of triangles 3. Number these rays clockwise 1 - 12, starting at the top right. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, by connecting all consecutive end-points of rays 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 6, pointing up. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 8, pointing up. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 9. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the righthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the righthand side. | ||||

13. |
Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 6 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 12, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 6 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 12. | ||||

14. |
Repeat step 13 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4. | ||||

15. |
Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 12 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 8, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 12 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 8. | ||||

16. |
Repeat step 15 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4. | ||||

17. |
Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 8 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 10, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 8 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 10. | ||||

18. |
Repeat step 17 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4. | ||||

19. |
Circles 1, 6, 8, 10, and 12, and lines 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
