  1. truncated conenoun

    a frustum formed from a cone


  1. truncated cone

    In geometry, a frustum (from the Latin for 'morsel'; plural: frusta or frustums) is the portion of a solid (normally a pyramid or a cone) that lies between two parallel planes cutting this solid. In the case of a pyramid, the base faces are polygonal, the side faces are trapezoidal. A right frustum is a right pyramid or a right cone truncated perpendicularly to its axis; otherwise it is an oblique frustum. If all its edges are forced to become of the same length, then a frustum becomes a prism (possibly oblique or/and with irregular bases). In computer graphics, the viewing frustum is the three-dimensional region which is visible on the screen. It is formed by a clipped pyramid; in particular, frustum culling is a method of hidden surface determination. In the aerospace industry, a frustum is the fairing between two stages of a multistage rocket (such as the Saturn V), which is shaped like a truncated cone.


  1. truncated cone

    A truncated cone, also known as a frustum, is a geometric shape that is formed by cutting off the top of a cone with a plane parallel to its base. This results in a shape with two circular bases of different diameters, one at the top and one at the bottom, which are connected by slanted sides. The top base appears as if it has been 'truncated' or 'cut off', hence the name.
