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.
