    Right, nothing is impossible, the "impossible" just costs more, and takes a while longer...

    In this case though, it's not even close to being impossible - Just have a look here: How to Create a Pyramid with the Family Editor

      yes but this is non equal sides in rectangle so it will not be the same effect of pyramid or work as pyramid. i asked before this question but this does not work in this case because the explantion was in the link about the sweep method.

        It's hard (for me, anyway) to see exactly what is going on there. Can you post a better example?

          Sorry, my bad - Missed the part of the pyramid being rectangular... Anyway, create a solid rectangular box, and "carve" it out by using two void extrusions... as in the attached.

          But like I said, nothing is impossible

              The above is a generic family, but the technique to create it, would be the same in any family category.

                  I do, but it's to late in the evening to crank up obsolete software... Have a look at the image I provided - It's really very simple. One rectangular box, and two void extrusions (with different slopes) to cut the box from both left/right and front/back.

                  Speaking of late... What time is it in Egypt now? It´s like 0:40 here, and I'd figure that you are at least two hours ahead? Time to call it a day?
