How to make a Cone in Paint Net


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I'm interested in drawing a 3D cone, but can't find the right plugin for this. Is there one? Also, if I drew a cone seen directly from above, such as a tower's roof (basically a circle with a central point) how would I get the sort of shading that would convey the idea this is a conical shape? The conical gradient built into the basic Paint Net version doesn't quite work in this respect. I tried bevelling, but this produces more of a spherical cupola effect. Thanks!

Hello @Ambreville.  Your best bet would be the Shape 3D Plugin. 

 

Good luck figuring out how to get the cone shape though - as there are quite a few dials to navigate :blank:

There are a couple of cone shapes in my custom shape pack:

(I'm sure you have more skills than me and you're roof will look better. :lol:)
