The Pseudo Code

  1. Create a point
  2. Copy this point into 3 other areas
  3. Connect the points with benzine lines
  4. Create two other points
  5. And connect these points
  6. Divide these lines into segments
  7. Connect the newly created points into arcs
  8. Divide the arcs in the same way as the lines
  9. Connect these new points to each other within the arcs
  10. Connect the lines by creating a new surface
  11. From this surface make it into a pyramid
  12. Add colour to the model.


As this project is parametric, it possible to change a large number of the parameters

Different parameters include the benzine lines, the angle of the arcs and though not seen here; the height, the with, the number of arcs, and the height of the pyramids, etc.
