Cone

Cone
represents a cone with a base of radius r centered at and a tip at .
Cone
represents a cone with a base of radius 1.
  • Cone represents the whole filled cone, not just the surface.
  • The base of the cone is a disk.
  • The base radius of the cone can be specified either in absolute coordinates, or as Scaled[s].
  • Colors and other material properties of cones can be specified using color directives as well as Specularity and Glow.
  • Cones can be specified as transparent using Opacity directives.
  • Cone represents a collection of cones with base radius .
  • Cone represents a collection of cones with base radius r.
  • Cone represents a collection of cones with specifications and base radii .
