Truncated Cone

The MeshTruncatedCone command draws a mesh truncated cone.

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.

The number of faces in the vertical direction.

AroundFaces

The number of faces around the circumference.

CapFaceStyle (Tri/Quad)

Select to use triangle or quad faces to fill the top and bottom openings.

End circle options

Radius

Pick a location or enter a number to set the end circle radius.

Diameter

Pick a location or enter a number to set the end circle diameter.
