# Cone

Cone[{{x1,y1,z1},{x2,y2,z2}},r]
represents a cone with a base of radius r centered at (x1,y1,z1) and a tip at (x2,y2,z2).

Cone[{{x1,y1,z1},{x2,y2,z2}}]
represents a cone with a base of radius 1.

## DetailsDetails

• Cone can be used as a geometric region and a graphics primitive.
• Cone[] is equivalent to Cone[{{0,0,-1},{0,0,1}}].
• Cone represents a filled cone region where and the vectors are orthogonal with , and and .
• Cone can be used in Graphics3D.
• In graphics, the points pi and radii r can be Scaled and Dynamic expressions.
• Graphics rendering is affected by directives such as EdgeForm, FaceForm, Specularity, Opacity, and color.
• Cone[{spec1,spec2,},{r1,r2,}] represents a collection of cones with specifications speci and base radii ri.
