Cone showing up as pyramid

Anonymous
Not applicable
I crudely modified an office chair from the AC 18 library to look like a barber's chair. The base is supposed to be a shallow cone, but it shows up as a pyramid .
The relevant script is:
!!--Cone Base
MATERIAl gs_frame_mat
ADDY 0.20
CONE 0.10,0.30,0.06,90,90
DEL 1
Does anyone know what I'm missing?

There are a few commands that affect the smoothness of cylindrical elements.
RADIUS
RESOL
TOLER

One of these has probably been set to a low value in your script.

Try 'RESOL 36' before your cone to reset to the default value.
