Truncated Cone

The TruncatedCone command draws a cone whose apex is truncated by a plane.

Steps

  1. Draw the base circle.

  2. Pick a location or type a number to set the height.

    The positive direction of the height is different based on the selected DirectionConstraint option.

  3. Draw the end circle.

Base circle options

DirectionConstraint

Direction constraints restrict the direction of the truncated cone.

None

Pick or type a number to set the height.

Vertical

Creates a truncated cone perpendicular to the construction plane.

AroundCurve

Draws the base circle perpendicular to the picked point on a curve. The center line of the truncated cone will be tangent to the curve.

Solid

Caps the top and bottom openings or leave them open.

Radius

Draws the base circle by picking the center point and a radius point.
