What can be the cross section at the cone?
cone cross section
Depending on the angle of inclination of the section plane to the base of the cone, four sections can be formed: a circle, an ellipse, a parabola, a hyperbola.

1. Connect the unfolding, so that you get a tube.

2. To avoid difficulties and shifts when gluing
bases, we recommend that you first glue the auxiliary
items. This will allow them to hold them smoothly.

3. We perform a similar procedure for the lower base.

4. Glue the base.
 
 
cross section cone paraboloid
We suggest you build a truncated cone model with the following characteristics: height 110 mm, base diameter 100 mm, section plane inclination angle 65 °, slice thickness relative to the base 10 mm, section shape - parabola.
