CONE CONSTRUCTION FOR MODEL BUILDING:
("Truncated Cone" or "Conical Frustum")
dot Create accurate cone shapes with precise bottom and top shapes
dot Given cone height (h), bottom diameter (b) and top diameter (a)
dot Determine inner (r) and outer (s) radius to cut, and minimum arc (alpha)
dot Determine the slope of the cone from the horizontal (beta)
