classmethod Cylinder.from_points(point_a: Union[numpy.ndarray, Sequence], point_b: Union[numpy.ndarray, Sequence], radius: float) skspatial.objects.cylinder.Cylinder[source]

Instantiate a cylinder from two points and a radius.

Parameters
point_a, point_barray_like

The centres of the two circular ends.

radiusfloat

The cylinder radius.

Returns
Cylinder

The cylinder defined by the two points and the radius.

Examples

>>> from skspatial.objects import Cylinder
>>> Cylinder.from_points([0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 1], 1)
Cylinder(point=Point([0, 0, 0]), vector=Vector([0, 0, 1]), radius=1)
>>> Cylinder.from_points([0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 2], 1)
Cylinder(point=Point([0, 0, 0]), vector=Vector([0, 0, 2]), radius=1)
