Cone(center=(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), direction=(1.0, 0.0, 0.0), height=1.0, radius=None, capping=True, angle=None, resolution=6)[source]#

Create a cone.

centersequence[float], default: (0.0, 0.0, 0.0)

Center in [x, y, z]. Axis of the cone passes through this point.

directionsequence[float], default: (1.0, 0.0, 0.0)

Direction vector in [x, y, z]. Orientation vector of the cone.

heightfloat, default: 1.0

Height along the cone in its specified direction.

radiusfloat, optional

Base radius of the cone.

cappingbool, optional

Enable or disable the capping the base of the cone with a polygon.

anglefloat, optional

The angle in degrees between the axis of the cone and a generatrix.

resolutionint, default: 6

Number of facets used to represent the cone.


Cone mesh.


Create a default Cone.
