CylindricalSurface Constructor (ListPoint, ListPoint, Line, Vector)

Initializes a new instance of the CylindricalSurface class from the cone lateral boundaries and the center line. This is the recommended constructor if fine grained control is desired over the lateral boundaries of the surface.

Namespace:  Tekla.Structures.Model
Assembly:  Tekla.Structures.Model (in Tekla.Structures.Model.dll) Version: 2023.0.1
public CylindricalSurface(
	List<Point> lateralBoundary1,
	List<Point> lateralBoundary2,
	Line centerLine,
	Vector rotationAxis


Type: System.Collections.GenericListPoint
The first lateral boundary.
Type: System.Collections.GenericListPoint
The second lateral boundary
Type: Tekla.Structures.Geometry3dLine
The center line of the cone/cylinder
Type: Tekla.Structures.Geometry3dVector
A vector normal to the circular cross sections of the cylinder. It defines the rotation axis from the start of a lateral boundary to the end of the same lateral boundary, according to the right hand rule.
