As with any regular geometric formation, scaling up or down is simply a matter of altering the length of the line segments that comprise the vertices. The angles don't change as scale is altered. In other words, once you know the angles, all you have to do is make all of the "sticks" longer or shorter by an equal amount to increase or decrease the scale of the pyramid.

Really some math involved here! bill
I'd be a lot more impressed with the math if they'd spelled "height" correctly... or if the math wasn't based on pure opinion and conjecture. Maybe it's just me.

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Hey, I made your pyramid yesterday! I haven't meditated in it - nor do I ever intend to - but I DO feel energized from the joy of actually getting my angles to work on the first try. That has to count for something.

great!

nice work on the mobile life guard chair!

Where do you hang the tin foil hat and RayBan glasses or are you still wearing them? bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
