Summary

This is my first creation, so please bear with me.

I was recently on holiday and saw a wooden pyramid puzzle which had a really clever design.. The unique thing was that you could make an infinitely sized pyramid, as long as you had enough pieces.

I figured this would be ideal for 3D printing and was sure I would find the model.. But after hunting around it seems not.

So I set about creating my own.. After a few attempts of getting the angles right, I think I have it.. However the original instructions that I took a sneaky photo of are not clear so I can't be sure, but my design certainly creates a pyramid, but I struggle to make the other models shown.

To make a small pyramid you just need 4 of the "prism" shaped pieces and 2 of the small pyramids...

I hope this helps someone and would love to see your creations if you can be bothered to create a big pyramid.

Instructions

There are 2 types of pieces.. 1 shaped like a Pyramid.. The other a Prism.. To make the smallest pyramid, you need 4 of the Prism pieces and 2 of the Pyramids..

And you lay them out like this:
