A description of a cylinder.
Name Type Description
options object Object with the following properties:
Name Type Default Description
length number The length of the cylinder.
topRadius number The radius of the top of the cylinder.
bottomRadius number The radius of the bottom of the cylinder.
slices number 128 optional The number of edges around the perimeter of the cylinder.
