This command creates a paraboloid in the geometry.

Inline mode usage

paraboloid -h
Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
paraboloid -n <name> -p <centerX> <centerY> <centerZ> <focus> <radius> <holeRadius>
Draws a paraboloid on the screen with the vertex point, focus distance and radius. Hole radius is used to create a hole around the vertex.

Interactive mode usage

  • Center point: Describes the vertex of the paraboloid.
  • Focus distance: It is defined as the distance between the vertex and focus point.
  • Radius: It is the distance from the vertex to the corner point in XY plane.
  • Hole radius: It is the size of the hole in the center of paraboloid.
