# 2D of Cylinder/ cone

We have 2D drawings that represent cylinders and cones.
For clarity would be a good idea to have "lines" from top to bottom,
emulating 3D, helping to visualize the 3D. Dia symbol in the dim's is not
enough
Normally we would draw a circle in size equivalent to the rectangular edge
or for cones 2 (small and large), divide into same number e.g.. 36, than
project those points into the edges/ connect the points.
I've heard there might be a lisp to draw that, like a hatch pattern.
Regards,
RC

Why not drawing in 3D and using the top view?
Try out the xtornd-demo.fas. Perhaps it will meet your wishes.

The person who is drawing, is not "exactly master" in 3D and because all
(over 200 architectural/ interior drawings), whole project, is in 2D,
I'd like to stick w 2D only,
We need to draw that as elevations of the figures.
Having a lot of the cylinder and cones would make sense to have simple,
quick and easy like .... hatch pattern,
As I was told that already exists??

None of which I am aware. You'd need to DIVIDE the top and bottom arcs by the same number, then connect the points.
