Any design model for the Bent pyramid must take into account the length of the bend line. With the upper part having a height of 110 cubits and the slope 14:15, the bend line is 235c 5p. Note that this is not a whole number of cubits.

The data you give for the lower part supports the thesis that it has a uniform slope of 10:7. Miatello, following on from Legon's model (where the 110c height of the upper part is derived from the 110c slope length of the lower part), has suggested that the profile triangle for the lower part is 63c-90c-110c. This profile triangle is helpful in doing the maths required to calculated the length of the base. With a height of 90 cubits, we see that the base must be 235c 5p plus 2 x 63c = 361c 5p, not a whole number of cubits, but in keeping with Petrie's observed measures and in keeping with the cubit-and-palm measure for the bend-line. The whole cubit measure is contained in the profile right triangle (base of 63 cubits).

The convexity of the faces is only supported in one case, that of the western face. All the other faces are of uniform slope, and the northern and eastern faces support the thesis that this uniform slope is 10:7 (and not the 7:5 slope required for a supposed Betelgeuse orientation).
