I have been trying to create a square pyramid with subdivided triangles in blender. So far I've tried to create using cone and plane extruded. I'm able to create a square pyramid with same base and triangle length (by extruding a plane and merging). But I'm unable to subdivide each triangle face it into 8 equal triangles (as in the picture). Could someone assist me on this?

    $\begingroup$ Hello, weird because I've just tried and a simple Subdivide seems to work fine: zupimages.net/up/21/44/wpye.jpg $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ create your pyramid (for example create a cone and in the Operator box, on the bottom left of the 3D view, choose Vertices > 4), switch to Edit mode, select all, right click > Subdivide, in the Operator box choose Number of Cuts > 2 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Ribbit12 you can still answer, especially if you know how to make an equilateral 5 face pyramid $\endgroup$
