DirectionConstraint

Direction constraints restrict the direction of the cone.

None

Pick or type a number to set the height.

Creates a cone perpendicular to the construction plane.

AroundCurve

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

Solid (Yes/No)

Decides if the bottom will be capped to create a solid or open cone.

Radius
