Creates a simple parametric cylinder, with position, angle, radius and height parameters.
- Switch to the Part Workbench
- There are several ways to invoke the command:
- Press the Cylinder button in the toolbar.
- Select Part → Primitives → Cylinder entry from the top menu
Result: The default result is a full cylinder with a radius of 2 mm and height of 10 mm, centered along the global z-axis and attached to the global xy-plane.
The cylinder properties can later be edited, either in the property editor or by double-clicking on the cylinder in the model tree.
- DataAngle: This is the rotation angle that permits the creation of a portion of cylinder (it is set to 360° by default)
- DataHeight: The height is the distance in the z-axis
- DataRadius: The radius defines a plane in x-y.
- DataFirst Angle: angle in first direction. introduced in version 0.20
- DataSecond Angle: angle in second direction. introduced in version 0.20
