Truncated Cone

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make a truncated one from the solid cone tool? I want the cone to have a flat top. I guess I can do this in multiple steps with boolean subtraction, but I was hoping there was somthing inherent to the tool.

Thanks for your help

Have you tried the Tapered Extrude command? Draw a circle (matching the diameter of the base of your cone) then with it selected go to Model>Tapered Extrude. A dialog will come up allowing you to choose a Height and Angle, both of which can be adjusted later via the Object Info Palette...
