Instance Property


The extent of the tube along its y-axis. Animatable.


@property(nonatomic) CGFloat height;


The tube is centered in its local coordinate system. For example, if a tube has a height of 10.0, its base lies in the plane whose y-coordinate is -5.0 and its top is in the plane whose y-coordinate is 5.0. The default height is 1.0. A height of zero or less creates an empty geometry.

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