How to draw a generic cylinder with arbitrary orientation

4 views (last 30 days)
How to draw a generic cylinder, we have its radius, length, position of center of mass ( or bottom face center) and its orientation (using a unit vector, for example 0,0,1 for z-axis ). Any help would be appreciated.

See this File Exchange download,
deal([0 0 0], 2, 10, [45 -30]); %Cylinder parameters
gtCyl=cylindricalFit.groundtruth([],cCenter,cRadius,cHeight,cYawPitch); %Data-less ground truth objects

This is what I learned, in case somebody needs it as well:
Z_axis oriented cylinder: cYawPitch= [0 90]
Y_axis oriented cylinder: cYawPitch= [90 0]
X_axis oriented cylinder: cYawPitch= [0 0]
