Polygonal Construction, ContinuedInscribedmethodDrawing geometric figures around a circle is known as the inscribed methodof polygonal construction.The circle is inside the figure and the sides of thegeometric figure are tangential to the circle circumference. The diameter ofthe circle is measured at a 45° angle to the horizontal. Measurements forfigure construction is made from the diameter or across the flats.Figure 2-33 shows the construction of a square using the inscribed method.Figure 2-33.—A circle inscribed by a square.Continued on next page2-34
