Instance Property

radialSegmentCount

The number of subdivisions around the circumference of the cylinder. Animatable.

Declaration

var radialSegmentCount: Int { get set }

Discussion

A larger number of segments adds more vertex data to the geometry, creating a smoother curve for the cylinder’s circular cross section at a cost to rendering performance.

The default segment count is 48. Setting this property’s value to a number less than 3 results in undefined behavior.

You can animate changes to this property’s value. See Animating SceneKit Content.
