The

statement creates a finite length cone or a **cone***frustum *(a cone with the point cut off). The syntax is:

*CONE:***cone {***<Base_Point>***,***Base_Radius***,***<Cap_Point>***,***Cap_Radius**[***open***][OBJECT_MODIFIERS...]*- }

**
**

The geometry of a cone.

Where *<Base_Point>* and *< Cap_Point> *are vectors defining the x, y, z coordinates of the center of the cone's base and cap and *Base_Radius* and *Cap_Radius* are float values for the corresponding radii.

Normally the ends of a cone are closed by flat planes which are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the length of the cone. Adding the optional keyword

after **open***Cap_Radius *will remove the end caps and results in a tapered hollow tube like a megaphone or funnel.
