Off center pyramid

Postby atripp » Thu Oct 05, 2017 6:47 pm

How would I go about making a pyramid where the high point is off center and two of the base lines are different dimensions. In the attached photo, the blue lines represent an elevation view. The drawing on the right is a side view with the pyramid laying flat. There will be 4 pyramid's put together to form a base.

If you look at my file you'll see a very, very, very small rectangle in the center of the layout.
That and the outer rectangle are the 2 rails....

You'll need to put on your "special" reading glass for this one.

Mike,
Where did you get the width (9.1362) of the sweep profile? I know you got the height from my cross section dimension.

Thank you.

Width of the profile doesn't really matter as long as you have the rails set up with the right width and you set the model height to the exact height it needs to be. It will automatically adjust the profile to the width of the rails.
