In Reply to: How to make a Pyramid posted by Hideto Matsumoto on July 06, 1999 at 23:21:49:
I am glad to hear you like DesignWorkshop! Thank you for telling us that.
To make a pyramid quickly and accurately, there is a little trick. First choose the Faces tool (on the lower left of the tool palette, just above the Eye tool). Then click once on the top face of the cuboid block, to select just this top face. Then Space-Jump the 3D crosshair to any one of the highlighted corner handles of the top face, and drag that corner handle in toward the center of the face.
The rule is that a selected face scales about its center, so you can easily scale it symmetrically. Scaling the top face of a block symmetrically down to nothing gives you a quick pyramid.
Thanks for the good question. We will look forward to hearing from you again.
