Subject: Creating cones



You can create three-dimensional cones defined by a circular base and tapering to a point perpendicular to the base. The base of the cone is always parallel with the xy plane of the current UCS; the height of the cone is always parallel with the z-axis. You position the cone by specifying the center of the base. You determine the size of the cone by specifying either the radius or the diameter of the base and the height.    

To create a cone as an ACIS solid  

   1   Do one of the following to choose Cone ():

   On the ribbon, choose Draw 3D > Cone (in Draw 3D Solids).

   On the menu, choose Draw > 3D Solids > Cone.

   On the Draw 3D Solids toolbar, click the Cone tool.

   Type cone and then press Enter.

   2   Specify the center of the base of the cone.

   3   Specify the radius or diameter.

   4   Specify the height.

To create a cone as a Facet Model mesh

   1   Do one of the following to choose Cone ():

   On the ribbon, choose Draw 3D > Cone (in Facet Model Meshes).

   On the menu, choose Draw > Facet Model Meshes > Cone.

   On the Facet Model Meshes toolbar, click the Cone tool.

   Type fmcone and then press Enter.

   2   Specify the center of the base of the cone.

   3   Specify the radius or diameter.

   4   Specify the height.
