Cylinders

Post by Tstageman on Thu Feb 09, 2012 11:28 am

Another quick question, is it possible to make cylinders and circle objects? At the moment I am using Notepad and coding in b3d format using Object Viewer to help.

Thanks

Code:
[Meshbuilder]
Cylinder 16, 0.502, 0.502, 0.2
Color 100, 100, 100
Rotate 0, 0, 1, 90
Translate -0.818, 0.502, -8.635

That should give you a green cylinder; you obviously change the sizes and colour to what you require.

Specifically there are some great guides here http://www.eezypeazy.co.uk/publications/1%20Cylinders%20pt%201.pdf and here http://www.eezypeazy.co.uk/publications/2%20Cylinders%20pt%202.pdf
If those don't explain cylinders then nothing will. Also Al has said that if you want to try one of his nifty utilities for making cylinders the easy way you only have to email him, I have already PMed you his addy.
