Reconstruction of theAckling Dyke 21-06-2020 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 14-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Draw the fourteen rays of polygon 2, from the center to the angular points. Number these rays clockwise 1 - 14, starting at the top. | ||||

4. |
Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, and the intersection of circle 1 and ray 3 nr. 1. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 4. | ||||

6. |
Repeat step 4 thirteen times, with respect to the other rays 3 and corresponding positions, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 5 and ray 3 nr. 2, passing through the intersection of line 4 and ray 3 nr. 2. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the lower side. | ||||

10. |
Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, and the intersection of circle 9 and ray 3 nr. 14. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 10. | ||||

12. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 11 with rays 3 nrs. 1 and 7. | ||||

13. |
Repeat step 12 six times, with respect to the pairs of rays 3 nrs. 3 and 9, 5 and 11, 7 and 13, 9 and 1, 11 and 3, and 13 and 5. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 5, and 9, and lines 3, 4, 6, 12, and 13, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
