stores a cone
The Cone node specifies a cone which is centred in the local coordinate system
and whose central axis is aligned with the local Y-axis. The
bottomRadius field specifies the radius of the cone's base, and the height field specifies the height of the cone from the centre of the base to the
apex. By default, the cone has a radius of 1.0 at the bottom and a height of 2.0, with its apex at y = height/2 and its bottom at y = -height/2. Both
bottomRadius and height shall be greater than zero.
The side field specifies whether sides of the cone are created and the bottom
field specifies whether the bottom cap of the cone is created. A value
of TRUE specifies that this part of the cone exists, while a value of FALSE specifies that this part does not exist (not rendered or eligible for
collision or sensor intersection tests).
When a texture is applied to the sides of the cone, the texture wraps counterclockwise
(from above) starting at the back of the cone. The texture
has a vertical seam at the back in the X=0 plane, from the apex (0, height/2, 0) to the point (0, -height/2, -bottomRadius). For the bottom cap, a
circle is cut out of the texture square centred at (0, -height/2, 0) with dimensions (2 × bottomRadius) by (2 × bottomRadius). The bottom cap
texture appears right side up when the top of the cone is rotated towards the -Z-axis. TextureTransform affects the texture coordinates of the
The Cone geometry requires outside faces only. When viewed from the inside the results are undefined.
