Image bm779.GIF Cone
The cone element creates a cone having a diameter of 1 and a height of 1 that is balanced around the coordinate system origin (the cone vertex lying on the Y axis in point 0.5, the lower base intersecting the Y axis in point -0.5). The complexity (i.e. the number of the cone circumference divisions) is determined by the complexity of object element. For every 8 object complexity degrees 1 additional circumference stripe (a row of points) is added. For every 20 object complexity degrees 1 additional lower base stripe (interstage) is added. By setting the create lower base switch can be decided, whether the cone's lower base is supposed to be created. The element returns the identification number of the created cone.
