device Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Device
A Device object that represents the device associated with the created cylinder mesh.
radius1 System.Single
Radius at the negative Z end. Value should be greater than or equal to 0.0f.
radius2 System.Single
Radius at the positive Z end. Value should be greater than or equal to 0.0f.
length System.Single
Length of the cylinder along the z-axis.
slices System.Int32
Number of slices around the main axis.
stacks System.Int32
Number of stacks along the main axis.

Return Value

A Mesh object that represents the cylinder mesh.


The created cylinder is centered at the origin, and its axis is aligned with the z-axis.
