The

statement creates finite length cylinder with parallel end caps The syntax is:**cylinder**

*CYLINDER:***cylinder{***<Base_Point>***,***<Cap_Point>***,***Radius**[***open***][OBJECT_MODIFIERS...]*- }

**
**

The geometry of a cylinder.

Where *<Base_Point> *and *<Cap_Point> *are vectors defining the x, y, z coordinates of the cylinder's base and cap and *Radius *is a float value for the radius.

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

after the radius will remove the end caps and results in a hollow tube.**open**
