Description

A parametric truncated Part Cone primitive is available in the Part workbench from the Part tool bar, Part menu (primitives sub-menu) and the Create Primitives dialogue.

Otherwisedefault270degree Part Cone.png

A Part Cone with the parameter "Angle" set to 270 degrees and all other parameters are set to their default values.

Usage

  1. Switch to the Workbench Part.svg Part Workbench
  2. There are two ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Part Cone.svg Cone button in the toolbar.
    • Select the Part → Primitives → Part Cone.svg Cone from the menu bar.

Result: The default values create a truncated parametric cone that is positioned at the origin (point 0,0,0) and attached to the global xy-plane. Its height of 10 mm is along the global z-axis. The lower DataRadius 1 is 2 mm, the upper DataRadius 2 is 4 mm.

The cone properties can later be edited, either in the Property editor or by double-clicking the cone in the Tree view.

Properties

  • DataRadius 1: Radius of the arc or circle defining the lower face
  • DataRadius 2: Radius of the arc or circle defining the upper face
  • DataHeight: Height of the Part Cone
  • DataAngle: Number of degrees of the arc or circles defining the upper and lower faces of the truncated cone. The default 360° creates circular faces, a lower value will create a portion of a cone as defined by upper and lower faces each with edges defined by an arc of the number of degrees and two radii.
