A cylinder is a geometric solid bounded by a cylindrical surface and two parallel planes intersecting it.
A cylinder refers to a group of solids formed by rotating a flat geometric figure around an axis.

1. Connect the pattern so that you get a tube.

2. To avoid difficulties and shifting 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. Perform a similar procedure for the lower base.

4. Glue the base.

An example of a truncated cylinder from architecture:
In 1989, a planetarium in the shape of a truncated cylinder was built in Copenhagen (Denmark).
