The cylinder() function in p5.js is used to draw a cylinder with given radius and height.

Syntax:

cylinder( radius, height, detailX, detailY, bottomCap, topCap )

Parameters: The function accepts six parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • radius: This parameter stores the radius of the surface.
  • height: This parameter stores the height of the surface.
  • detailX: This parameter stores the number of segments in x-dimension.
  • detailY: This parameter stores the number of segments in y-dimension.
  • bottomCap: This parameter stores the boolean value whether to draw bottom base of cylinder.
  • topCap: This parameter stores the boolean value whether to draw top base of cylinder.

    Below programs illustrate the cylinder() function in p5.js:

    Example 1: This example uses cylinder() function to draw a cylinder with given radius and height.




    function setup() {
        
        // Create Canvas of size 600*600
        createCanvas(600, 600, WEBGL);
    }
       
    function draw() {
          
        // Set background color
        background(200);
         
        // Set fill color of cylinder
        fill('green');
         
        // Call to cylinder function
        cylinder(100, 85, 24, 16, true, false);
    }

    Output:

    Example 2: This example uses cylinder() function to draw a cylinder with given radius and height.




    function setup() {
        
        // Create Canvas of size 600*600
        createCanvas(600, 600, WEBGL);
    }
       
    function draw() {
          
        // Set background color
        background(200);
         
        // Set fill color of cylinder
        fill('yellow');
         
        // Rotate 
        rotateX(frameCount * 0.01);
        rotate(frameCount*0.03);
         
        // Call to cylinder function
        cylinder(140, 205, 24, 16, true);
    }

    Output:
