Cheers! Troy RE: Create "Elliptical Cylinder" - troy@gettageek.com - 05-01-2020 Hey Forum, Did some digging and have discovered the Ab3d.Utilities.Triangulator and Mesh3DFactory.CreateExtrudedMeshGeometry should get me what I need. Really enjoying this library, great tools, Cheers! Troy RE: Create "Elliptical Cylinder" - abenedik - 05-04-2020 Great, Ab3d.Utilities.Triangulator and Mesh3DFactory.CreateExtrudedMeshGeometry can be also used for that task. You can also use ScaleTransform3D to scale a cylinder along an axis. For example: Code:```var cylinderVisual3D = new CylinderVisual3D() {    BottomCenterPosition = new Point3D(0, 0, 0),    Height               = 50,    Radius               = 30,    Material             = new DiffuseMaterial(Brushes.Silver),    Transform            = new ScaleTransform3D(scaleX: 2.0, scaleY: 1.0, scaleZ: 1.0) };``` Or in xaml: Code:```                 ```
