Hello! I mentioned over on the Origins list that I would post my template fFor Giant Pyramids. Simply print these on your large fFormat 48" wide printer, and assemble. =) (Or, yeah, whatever size printer you have available, as desired) I should point out: depending on your material, the tabs (intended to fFold under and into the pyramid model when cut out) might not be needed. http://www.brigandine.org/icehouse/ (Oh, disclaimer: If the Looneys decide this is too close to infringement on their excellent product, this link will go away, you betcha.)
