Space claim creation of cylinders

    • satri

      I have 2 questions 

      1) Is it possible to create trapezoidal cylinders in space claim at an arbitrary location and oblique height.

      What I mean by that is, the center of my first circle (base circle) is in XY plane and the second circle is in YZ plane the height of the cylinder is the distance between the centers of the two circles in XY and YZ plane.

      2) Is there a python script command to create a cylinder in space claim?

      Hello @satri

      1) You can try using the Blend tool to create a solid from the 2 circles that you mentioned. Check out the below video on Blend tool:

      2) You can use the Record feature from scripting editor to record the script command of "Cylinder" tool.
