i am looking for a way to find the coordinate of the center of a circle in a sheared cylinder. the base of the cylinder has a center (x,y,z), the angle of tilt of the cylinder is theta.so i need a formula which allows me to get the center of any circle in the cylinder.however i can't seem to get the right formula.i've attached a file with the drawing of the sheared cylinder.(although the cylinder is sheared, it still have a circular cross-section)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
