Fun!Â Check out the 3D Tangram which results in a pyramid as well.
I like the idea of a base to hold the parts.Â I am currently working on a base which inverts the pyramid so you can solved the puzzle with the pyramid tip down.
That's funny! My thought was, "bummer, I wished I'd made this about 50% larger."
Referring back to my comment on your "I made one" picture page, I think the people for whom the color stripe is a tipoff are those who would get it instantly anyway. The others will likely not be any less lost for it.
Finally printed one. Had to change filament midway through which made for a neat effect but now I'm afraid it'll give away the solution due to the way it prints. Maybe take the 4 and stand them up on their triangular end so obfuscate the solution?
It's a lot bigger than I expected it. If I had it to do again I'd probably scale it down 50%. I mention that for anyone who comes after me because I'll probably keep this print forever.

Quoting LeftAngle's parent work: "The idea is to make the 2 pieces into a pyramid. It can be done, but it's not as easy as you might think. A great ice breaker."
I'll add that it's fun to find the right arrangement but not exactly stable in that arrangement, unless you have a little channel to permit it to stand on edge. So I've made such a thing. An equilateral triangle base would work too, but I like the drama of the higher center of gravity.
