CylinderMesh

Inherits: PrimitiveMesh < Mesh < Resource < Reference < Object

Class representing a cylindrical PrimitiveMesh.

Description

Class representing a cylindrical PrimitiveMesh. This class can be used to create cones by setting either the top_radius or bottom_radius properties to 0.0.

Property Descriptions

Default

1.0

Setter

set_bottom_radius(value)

Getter

get_bottom_radius()

Bottom radius of the cylinder. If set to 0.0, the bottom faces will not be generated, resulting in a conic shape.


Default

2.0

Setter

set_height(value)

Getter

get_height()

Full height of the cylinder.


  • int radial_segments

Default

64

Setter

set_radial_segments(value)

Getter

get_radial_segments()

Number of radial segments on the cylinder. Higher values result in a more detailed cylinder/cone at the cost of performance.


Default

4

Setter

set_rings(value)

Getter

get_rings()

Number of edge rings along the height of the cylinder. Changing rings does not have any visual impact unless a shader or procedural mesh tool is used to alter the vertex data. Higher values result in more subdivisions, which can be used to create smoother-looking effects with shaders or procedural mesh tools (at the cost of performance). When not altering the vertex data using a shader or procedural mesh tool, rings should be kept to its default value.


Default

1.0

Setter

set_top_radius(value)

Getter

get_top_radius()

Top radius of the cylinder. If set to 0.0, the top faces will not be generated, resulting in a conic shape.
