Reconstruction of theSmeathe's Plantation 25-06-2020 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed regular 18-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Draw the eighteen rays of polygon 2, from the center to the angular points. Number these rays, as well as the angular points, clockwise, 1 - 18, starting at the top. | ||||

4. |
Draw the connecting line between angular points (of polygon) 2 nrs. 3 and 17. | ||||

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

6. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between angular points 2 nrs. 4 and 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of ray 3 nr. 1 and line 4. | ||||

8. |
Draw the connecting line between angular points 2 nrs. 1 and 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of ray 3 nr. 3 and line 8. | ||||

10. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 9 with rays 3 nrs. 1 and 7. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of ray 3 nr. 3 and line 10. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 6 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 11 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 12 at the righthand side. | ||||

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

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of ray 3 nr. 1 and line 4, passing through the intersection of circle 9 and ray 3 nr. 5. | ||||

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

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of ray 3 nr. 1 and line 4, tangent to circle 16 at the upper side. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 17 two times, to its lefthand and righthand intersections with circle 5. | ||||

19. |
Repeat step 18 eight times, with respect to rays 3 nrs. 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, and 17. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 17 to its own upper intersection with ray 3 nr. 1. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 20 at the upper side. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 17 to the intersection of ray 3 nr. 10 and circle 21. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 17 two times, to the lefthand and righthand intersections of circle 22 with circle 21. | ||||

24. |
Repeat step 23 eight times, with respect to rays 3 nrs. 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14, 16, and 18. | ||||

25. |
Copy circle 7 seventeen times, to the corresponding positions (mid-points) of the other sides of polygon 2. | ||||

26. |
Circles 1, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 23, 24, and 25, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
