# glutSolidCone man page

**glutSolidCone** — Draw a solid cone.

## Library

OpenGLUT - geometry

## Synopsis

**#include <openglut.h>**

`void` **glutSolidCone**(`GLdouble base`, `GLdouble height`, `GLint slices`, `GLint stacks`);

## Parameters

base

Cone radius at the base in the xy plane.

height

Height of cone in positive z direction.

slices

The number of divisions around the z axis. (latitudal)

stacks

The number of divisions along the z axis. (longitudal)

## Description

The glutSolidCone() function draws a shaded cone with a base in the xy-plane, oriented in the positive z direction.

## Caveats

The number of polygons representing the conical surface is proportional to (slices*stacks).
