Reconstruction of theCake Wood 9-07-2022 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 a circle centered at the righthand intersection of hexagon 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side. | ||||

4. |
Copy circle 3 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 4, pointing down. Extend its righthand side upwards upto hexagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of hexagon 2 and extended line 5, passing through the righthand intersection of triangle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 6 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

8. |
Draw a line parallel to extended line 5, from the righthand intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline, upto line 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of lines 7 and 8. | ||||

10. |
Draw a line parallel to line 7, from the intersection of extended line 5 and circle 9, downto the horizontal centerline. | ||||

11. |
Extend the lefthand side of triangle 5 downwards downto hexagon 2. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle tangent to line 11, tangent to the righthand side of triangle 5, and tangent to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 12, pointing down. Extend its righthand side upwards upto line 10. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of extended line 13 and line 10. | ||||

15. |
Draw a line parallel to line 7, from the intersection of line 8 and circle 14, downto the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |
Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersection of triangle 5 and the intersection of line 7, both with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

17. |
Remove from extended line 5, lines 7, and 8, extended line 13, and lines 15, and 16, all redundant parts... | ||||

18. |
...such that this pattern remains. | ||||

19. |
Copy pattern 18 four times, while rotating around the center of circle 1, with respect to the other angular points of hexagon 2, except the lower one, as shown. | ||||

20. |
Copy the upper lefthand pattern 19 as a whole, from its lower righthand angular point, to the intersection of line 11 and hexagon 2, as shown. | ||||

21. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

22. |
Patterns 18, 19, and 20, and hexagon 21, together, make up the final reconstruction. pdf-file | ||||
