    3D simulation of Cone in Atlas Silvaco TCAD

    Hi I am interested in simulating the a cone structure in Silvaco's ATLAS TCAD. Since its has a cylindrical symmetry, I should be able to define a simple triangle and rotate it about a side to form the cone. I am not sure if this facility is available in Silvaco, like in Sentaurus from...
