I am sure there has to be a simple way to make a cone, but I'm not seeing it.
I actually want a compressed cone, as it will be used to represent the field of view from a camera with a 90 degree vertical FOV and a 120 degree horizontal FOV. What this means is that I really need an elliptical cone. However, I can't seem to find a way to make just a normal cone! : )
I can do this in other tools, but can't solve it in Fusion for Mac. Here's a screenshot of what I did in Sketchup, which I am looking to do in Fusion. I don't particularly care if it's a solid cone or just a shell (although my requirement may change later).
Can someone please help me out with this?
Yes you can make an elliptical cone in Inventor Fusion. First, draw a triangle and revolve it into a cone shape. Next, use Modify > Scale and pick non-uniform scaling. You can squish the cone into an eliptical cone in this manner.
