Anyone here interested in trying to print me a Stargate pyramid? I "think" it would be pretty straight forward.

Ron,
That 10.3cm comes out about 9.4 if the other dims are correct.... Did you measure from the "1"?
Look ok? 6mm wall ok? need any mounting details?

I wish I knew! I was going off of measurements from an old thread by someone else. My machine never had the pyramid, so thought I'd try to get a 3d printer and make one, but you guys seem happy to mess around so I'll save myself a few hundred bucks and let you guys play!

Really need inside dimensions of pyramid as outside has texture and is irregular. Also, need to know how mounted and exact size and position of mounting holes.

Unfortunately, that's the wrong pyramid for me. I need the shiny metal looking one. But thanks for looking out for me!

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

I don't think something is quite right with some of the measurements. If you do the math, the height of the pyramid face (trapezoid) should be 89.2mm based upon a 51.5mm base and a 103mm hypotenuse on the right triangles. Also, the side triangle hypotenuse is calculated to be 93.74mm (base = 85-33 = 52mm). Now that we have all the measurements, you have a 93.74mm hypotenuse on each side butting up against a 103mm edge on the front - doesn't make sense. What am I missing here?

I was taking measures from another post . I don't have any pyramid pieces to use, just the space ship.

I was hoping for a plastic print. I can paint it to look metal. The ball never goes there, so all good.

I can't link the thread right now but I'll try later tonight.
