Truncated pyramids
The truncated pyramid is a polyhedron formed from a pyramid by cutting off its part by a plane parallel to the base.

The regular truncated pyramid is a truncated pyramid formed from a regular pyramid.

The paper net of the truncated pyramid is a flat geometric figure that completely repeats the body's surface and, when bending and gluing, allows the creation of a geometric solid.
Depending on the number of corners of the base, the truncated pyramids, as well as the regular pyramids, distinguish:
- triangular or trihedral pyramids;
- quadrangular or tetrahedral pyramids;
To create models of truncated pyramids of comparable sizes, you can use the pyramid's property, when a cone can be described near the pyramid.
