Calling Sequence

cone(c, r, h, options)

Parameters

c

-

vertex of the cone

r

-

(optional) radius of base circle of the cone; default is 1

h

-

(optional) height of the cone; default is 1

options

-

(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot3d/option.

Description

• 

The cone command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a cone of height h.  The vertex of the cone is located at c.  The base circle of the cone is centered at c + [0,0,h] and of radius r.

• 

The plot data object produced by the cone command can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.

• 

Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot3d/option.
