Truncated pyramids

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 surface of the body 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 property of the pyramid, when a cone can be described near the pyramid.
We chose three cones of various sizes in each of which can be inscribed 3, 4, ... 9-facet truncated right pyramid:

Let's demonstrate what it will look like on an example of a pentagonal truncated pyramid:

Below are the nets for variants of truncated pyramids with different number of faces:

Truncated pyramids

base is the regular hexagon
heptagonal pyramid 7 1
base is the regular heptagon
octagonal pyramid 8 1
base is the regular octagon
nine cornered pyramid 9 1
base is the regular ninth-gon
decagonal pyramid 10 1

How to make a truncated pyramid of paper?

To build a truncated pyramid, you will need to print a scan on a regular A4 sheet. Download net.

1. The cut out development of the pyramid is bent along the marked lines.

2. The flaps show the gluing sequence.
Having pasted the first flap, we get.

3. We glue the upper base of the pyramid in the place of gluing No. 2

4. We turn the pyramid and glue the base in place of gluing No. 3

We get the finished model of the truncated regular pyramid:

Pyramids from the set "Magic Edges"

To assemble polyhedrons, we can offer you ready-made patterns that are cut and folded.
To do this, you need to use the details of the set Magic Edges 14.
In addition, in the release itself you will find information about the structure of the polyhedrons.
