Reconstruction of the
Vimy (France) 5-07-2020 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 2.

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

5. Construct the inscribed circle of square 4.

6. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up.

7. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 6.

8. Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the righthand intersection of circle 7, and the intersection of the righthand side of triangle 6, both with the horizontal centerline.

9. Construct a "two-points" circle between the center of circle 8 and its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline.

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

11. Construct a circle, passing through the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of square 4, and tangent to circle 10 at the upper side.

12. Repeat step 11 three times, with respect to the other sides of square 4.

13. Construct a "two-points" circle between the upper intersections of circles 7 and 11 with the vertical centerline.

14. Repeat step 13 three times, with respect to circles 7 and 12.

15. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the upper side.

16. Copy circle 8 to the righthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline.

17. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 16 at the lefthand side.

18. Circles 1, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 17, are used for the final reconstruction.

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