Truncated cylinder, a geometric body, cut off from the cylinder by a plane that is not parallel to the base.
We offer you to build a model of a truncated cylinder, with the following characteristics: height 165 mm, base diameter 65 mm, the angle of inclination of the section plane 45 °.

Assembly scheme of a truncated cylinder:
1. Connect the net, so that you get a tube.
2. To avoid difficulties and shifts when gluing the bases, we recommend that you first glue the auxiliary elements. This will allow you to hold them smoothly when gluing and will create the correct shape of the geometric structure.
3. We perform a similar procedure for the lower base.
An example of a truncated cylinder from architecture:
In 1989, the planetarium in the shape of a truncated cylinder was built in Copenhagen (Denmark).
