Sorry, but I'm not flummoxed.

And I don't need to search the online dictionary looking for big words in an attempt to make myself appear smarter than I am.

I post nonsense because I like to dumb it down just for you.

You want to start getting personal with this now?

"We are offering a paper craft which is easy to assemble even for beginners, with satisfactory design."

Many of the kits from there have the same design characteristic.
All polygonal, lack of real curved cuts.
This is a good point, and something I did not consider.
I still stand beside my statements, but I can see how a polygonal construction might be simpler for a beginner.

In this case however, a round base attached to the smooth outer cone would be no more difficult to assemble.
Even the tab count could stay the same.

Cutting out a circular part can not be considered any more difficult than the polygonal shape?

If the outer Hull was comprised of pie segments, then I could see the relationship to a polygon base.
But its not.

I am thinking more along the lines of these, as the corners are radius-ed and not subject to nitpicking

Drop it? what, the tray?
