Command Options in Pro and Platinum
Pro and Platinum Option 
Description 
Specify center point 
Specifies the center of the pyramid's base: (pick a point or enter x,y,z coordinates.) 
Sides 
Specifies the number of sides (or vertices of the base); prompts you: Enter number of sides <4>  (Type a number, or press Enter to accept the default) 
Edge 
Specifies the length of the edges of the base face; prompts you:
As you move the cursor for the second point, the program ghosts an image of the pyramid. 
Specify base radius 
Specifies the radius of a circle inscribed by the base of the pyramid; prompts you: Specify base radius or [Circumscribed]  (enter a value, specify a point, or else enter C to switch to defining a circumscribed base) Inscribed means that the size of the base is the double the distance from the center point to one of the midpoint of the base: 
Circumscribed 
Specifies the radius of a circle circumscribed by the base of the pyramid; prompts you: Specify base radius or [Inscribed]  (enter a value, specify a point, or else enter I to switch to defining an inscribed base) Circumscribed means that the size of the base is determined by double the distance from the center point to one of the vertices of the base: 
Specify height 
Sets the height by picking a point or entering x,y,z coordinates 
2Point 
Set the height of the pyramid by specifying two points, such as along another entity; prompts you:

Axis endpoint 
Sets the length and orientation of the pyramid's axis by specifying the top of the pyramid, creating a rotated pyramid; prompts you: Specify axis endpoint  (specify a point or enter x,y,z coordinates) 
Top radius 
Allows to create a truncated pyramid; prompts you:

Command Options in Classic

Grips Editing
Pyramids made of solid models can be edited directly through grips:

Select the pyramid. Notice that it has several grips.

Drag a grip to move the pyramid. (All grips perform the same function: move.)
