Cylinder Node

Cylinder node.

The Cylinder node generates a cylinder mesh. It is similar to the cone node but always uses the same radius for the circles at the top and bottom.

Inputs

Vertices

Number of vertices on the circle at the top and bottom. No geometry is generated if the number is below three.

Side Segments

Number of edges running vertically along the side of the cone. No geometry is generated if the number is below one.

Fill Segments

Number of concentric rings used to fill the round faces at the top and bottom. No geometry is generated if the number is below one.

Radius

Distance of the vertices from the Z axis. If this is zero, the output will be a single line.

Depth

Height of the cylinder.

Properties

Fill Type

How the circles at the top and bottom are filled with faces when their radius is larger than zero.

None

Do not fill the circles.

N-Gon

Fill the innermost segment of the circles with a single face.

Triangles

Fill the innermost segment of the circles with triangles connected to a new vertex on the Z axis.

Outputs

Mesh

Standard geometry output.
