Cylinder

components/meshes/ Cylinder

Constructor

.new Cylinder(paramsopt)

A cylinder is one of the most basic curvilinear geometric shapes, the surface formed by the points at a fixed distance from a given straight line, the axis of the cylinder.

The solid enclosed by this surface and by two planes perpendicular to the axis is also called a cylinder.
The surface area and the volume of a cylinder have been known since deep antiquity.

Example

Creating a Cylinder, and adding to app

new Cylinder({
  geometry: {
    radiusTop: 2,
    radiusBottom: 4,
    height: 5
  },

  material: new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({
    color: 0xffffff
  }),

  pos: [0, 100, 0]
}).addTo(app);

Extends module:core.MeshComponent
