Detailed Description

VSG extension Algebraic cone shape node.

This node represents a simple cone whose central axis is aligned with the y-axis. By default, the cone is centered at (0,0,0) and has a size of -1 to +1 in all three directions. The cone has a radius of 1 at the bottom and a height of 2, with its apex at 1.

The cone is transformed by the current cumulative transformation and is drawn with the current lighting model and material.

This node can generally be used in place of the SoCone geometric shape node. Unlike the geometric shape nodes, which create triangle geometry to represent their shape, the algebraic shape nodes compute and render their shape on the GPU. Algebraic shapes can also be used with SoMultipleInstance to efficiently render a very large number of shapes.

Please see SoAlgebraicShape for important notes and limitations for algebraic shapes.
