Consider the following code:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pst-solides3d}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[htbp]
\centering
\psset{unit = 0.7}
\begin{pspicture}(-8.1,-5.6)(8.7,17.7)
  \pnodes%
    (0,17.65){A}%
    (0,0){B}%
    (3.09,-3.43){C}%
    (-8.02,1.24){D}%
    (-2.59,-5.57){E}%
    (8.64,-1.34){F}%
    (1.97,4.23){G}
  \pspolygon[linestyle = none, fillstyle = solid, fillcolor = gray!20](D)(E)(F)(G)
  \psSolid[
    object = new,
    action = draw,
    sommets =
       0 -3 0  % punkt 1
      -3  0 0  % punkt 2
       0  3 0  % punkt 3
       3  0 0  % punkt 4
       0  0 6, % punkt 5
    faces = {
      [3 2 1 0] % side A
      [4 0 3]   % side B
      [4 3 2]   % side C
      [4 2 1]   % side D
      [4 1 0]   % side E
    },
    RotZ = 30
  ]
  \psline(0,0.65)(0.45,0.2)(0.45,-0.5)
  \psline(3,-2.85)(3.6,-2.63)(3.67,-3.25)
 {\psset{linestyle = dotted, linecolor = red}
  \psline(A)(B)
  \psline(B)(C)
  \psline(A)(C)}
 {\psset{linestyle = none}
  \pcline[offset = -8.5pt](D)(E)
  \ncput{$g$}
  \pcline[offset = -8pt](E)(F)
  \ncput{$g$}
  \pcline[offset = 7pt](0,12)(B)
  \ncput{$h$}
  \pcline[offset = 8pt](A)(F)
  \ncput{$x$}}
\end{pspicture}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

The output is as I would like but the coordinates of the two projections and the right angles are found by trial and error. (One problem with the manually approach being that if I rotate the pyramid, the drawing is no longer correct.)

How do I use the pst-solides3d package to draw he entire drawing without having to find the coordinates manually?

    Side note: what happened to the Hpyramide question? I thought it was interesting, but then it disappeared...

  • @Marijn The package is very old and I found pst-solides3d which seems more up to date and easier to use. Commented Jun 14, 2018 at 16:37

  • Really nice. How do I remove the arrows from the right angles so that I "only" have the small square? Commented Jun 17, 2018 at 10:37

Without the vectors for the rightangle plane (you should accept the other amswer!):

\begin{pspicture}(-4,-2)(4,7)
\psset{viewpoint=100 10 20 rtp2xyz,Decran=100,solidmemory}

    action = draw*,
    sommets =
    0 -3 0  % punkt 0
    -3  0 0  % punkt 1
    0  3 0  % punkt 2
    3  0 0  % punkt 3
    0  0 6, % punkt 4
    faces = {
        [3 2 1 0] % side A
        [4 0 3]   % side B
        [4 3 2]   % side C
        [4 2 1]   % side D
        [4 1 0]   % side E
    }]
    % equation face : 2x+2y+z-6=0
\psSolid[object=plan,
    definition=normalpoint,name=face2,action=none,
    args={1.5 1.5 0 [-1.5 -1.5 6 2 2 1 -90]}]
\psProjection[object=rightangle,plan=face2,
    args= 0 1 0 0 1 0] 
    \psPoint(0,0,6){S}
    \psPoint(0,0,0){O}
    \psPoint(1.5,1.5,0){H}
    \psPoint(0,-3,0){A}
    \psPoint(3,0,0){B}
    \psPoint(0,3,0){C}
    \psPoint(-3,0,0){D}
    \psline[linestyle=dotted,linecolor=red](H)(S)
    \psline[linestyle=dotted,linecolor=red](O)(S)
    \psline[linestyle=dotted,linecolor=red](O)(H)
    % equation x-y=0
\psSolid[object=plan,definition=normalpoint,name=planmedian,action=none,
    args={0 0 0 [1.5 1.5 0 1 -1 0 0]}]
\psProjection[object=rightangle,args= 0 1 0 0 1 0,plan=planmedian]
