  • 1. Dividing a circle with a compass
    gerard brown
    2D Foundation Princples
  • 2. 1. Draw a circle with your compass
  • 3. 2. Draw a 2nd circle whose center is on the edge of the first your compass (red)
  • 4. 3. Draw a 3rd circle whose center is on the edge of the 2nd
    (this on is green)
  • 5. 4. Draw a 4th circle whose center is on the edge of the 3rd
    (this one is blue)
  • 6. 5 - 7. Using the points at which each new circles intersects the original shape, inscribe 3 more circles (they are purple)
  • 7. The central circle is now divided into six equal parts. Connecting the points will make a regular hexagon.
  • 8. To divide the figure into 12 parts, locate the midpoint between two points on the edge of the central circle.
  • 9. Moving clockwise from that point, repeat the sequence by which you located the first six peripheral circles (red).
