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.
- Open the Part Workbench.
- Invoke there Part Cone command several ways:
- Press the Part Cone button
- Use the Part → Primitives → Cone entry from the top menu.
Result: The default values create a truncated parametric cone, defined by
Angle parameters. The default cone will be positioned at origin (point 0,0,0) on creation. The angle parameter permits the creation of a portion of cone (it is set to 360° by default), and the radius 1 and 2 correspond to base and top radius of the truncated cone.
- Radius 1: radius of the arc or circle defining the lower face
- Radius 2: radius of the arc or circle defining the upper face
- Height: the height of the Part Cone
- Angle: the 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.
Above: shows a Part Cone with the parameter "Angle" set to 270 degrees and all other parameters are at their default values.
