Cone Solid

(3D only) Used to place a solid cone.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Modeling > Solids > Primitives
  • Toolbox: Primitive Solids

Axis Sets the direction of the cone's axis (height).
  • Points (AccuDraw) — Direction of height is defined graphically. AccuDraw can be used to define the drawing plane on which the points are placed.
  • Screen X, Y, or Z — Direction of the height is set to the screen's X, Y, or Z axis.
  • Drawing X, Y, or Z — Direction of the height is set to the drawing's, or design file's, X, Y, or Z axis.
Orthogonal If on, the cone is a right cone.
Top Radius If on, sets the second radius.
Base Radius If on, sets the first radius.
Height If on, sets the height.
Variable Link
Let's you use an existing variable to set the input value, defined in the Variables dialog.
Note: If no variables exist, you will be alerted to create one first.
Note: Although the cone's radii and height can be specified as tool settings, it is generally quicker and easier to type these distances into the AccuDraw window.
Note: This tool works similarly to the Cylinder Solid tool.
