This nine sided pyramid was a group project (three of us) and we had to make a Pyramid with nine sides out of MDF and the points all had to meed and the joints all had to be exact so it passed to gether with out any gaps, and the height and diameter was also to be met, which we did sucessfully.
The trickiest part was not the cutting/calculating but cutting such shapes and forms safely… requires jigs, simple jigs but effective and easy on the fingers.
I do not think it will ever be necessary for me to make another pyramid, but the project was more about the calculations (trig, angle functions) than about the use of a pyramid.
I thought this might interest someone or how it was calculated.
