Pyramid Puzzle (Four-piece triangular pyramid)

3D model description

This is a classic 4-piece pyramid puzzle. I did not find one at thingiverse so I decided to make one. You need to print 4 copies of the same piece to make a triangular pyramid. Great for all ages!

Notes:
Printed well using PLA at 198 degrees. Brim may not be necessary, but I used a 4mm brim.

It is created using 123D Design. I made a regular tetrahedron from a cube (slicing four corners). Then, I sliced the tetrahedron to make one piece for the puzzle. There must be other ways to make it. Have fun.
