At the same time the South - East and South - West directions of 135 and 225 degrees azimuth respectively were meant to determine the altitude of this specific celestial body so as to plan the slope of the Red pyramid as also that of the Bent cult pyramid. In the image below I used the geographical coordinates of these 3 pyramids.
It seems like the smooth sided pyramid idea that materialized during Sneferu's rule relates to the square base diagonals that define the South-East, and South-West directions(45 degree division).
