Cylindrical Geometry

Display a cylinder in your 3-D model

Description

The length of the cylinder is displayed between the points at which the component are connected in the model workspace. If you connect this shape to the frames of a single component,

a cylinder shape is displayed over the implicit geometry that represents the component in the 3-D workspace.

If you connect this component to the frames of two different modeling components,

the cylinder shape spans multiple components.
