p5.js | ellipsoid() function

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2019

The ellipsoid() function in p5.js is used to draw an ellipsoid with given radius.

Syntax:

ellipsoid( radiusX, radiusY, radiusZ, detailX, detailY )

Parameters: This function accepts five parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • radiusX: This parameter stores the x-radius of the ellipsoid.
  • radiusY: This parameter stores the y-radius of the ellipsoid.
  • radiusZ: This parameter stores the z-radius of the ellipsoid.
  • detailX: This parameter stores the number of segments in x-dimension.
  • detailY: This parameter stores the number of segments in y-dimension.

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

    Example 1: This example uses ellipsoid() function to draw an ellipsoid with given radius.




    function setup() {
        
        // Create Canvas of size 600*600
        createCanvas(600, 600, WEBGL);
    }
       
    function draw() {
          
        // Set background color
        background(200);
         
        // Set fill color of ellipsoid
        fill('green');
         
        // Call to ellipsoid function
        ellipsoid(90, 75, 32, 12, 12);
    }

    Output:

    Example 2: This example uses ellipsoid() function to draw an ellipsoid with given radius.




    function setup() {
        
        // Create Canvas of size 600*600
        createCanvas(600, 600, WEBGL);
    }
       
    function draw() {
          
        // Set background color
        background(200);
         
        // Set fill color of ellipsoid
        fill('yellow');
         
        // Rotate 
        rotateX(frameCount * 0.01);
        rotate(frameCount*0.03);
         
        // Call to ellipsoid function
        ellipsoid(190, 135, 130);
    }

    Output:
