Hi,

I would like to create a cylinder that has two different semi-ellipses as bases or even two different ellipses if simpler. How can I do?

Thanks in advance

Dear Andrea,

you can specify the surface of an elliptic cone using the generic quadratic surface QUA, and use two planes to specify the bases.

Iâ€™m not sure I understand. Do the elliptical cones serve to delimit the lateral surface of the cylinder and the planes its bases?

Hi Andrea,

yes, exactly.

Cheers,

David

Can you recommend a way to easily obtain the quadratic equation of the cone?
