Better late then never.

Draw a cube and use deform tool on the top and taper solid mode.

Rotate the top and you get a pyramid.

rotate it further and you get a tent.

Just for fun - A Marionette object that allows inputs for A, B, & C.

Hi Mrs. Farrell. I was sondering if you could somehow rescue the Marionette? I´m trying to build an intelligent object in the form of a truncated pyramid and I´m really struggling with the solid modelling and the construction planes.
