Shapes: cone

XSight RT supports two basic and very similar surfaces of revolution (SOR): cones and cylinders.


The most general way to define is cone is by giving the position of its bottom's center, its top and the radius of its base.

If you only need a vertical cone, you can substitute the coordinates for the top with the height of the cone:

And this final variant splits the bottom vector into its three individual components:

Cones in XSight RT are never open. However, you can simulate an open cone using the difference operator, by removing the inner part from a cone using another smaller one.
