You can create a cylinder using the tidy3d.Cylinder object. In the example below we create a cylinder 2 \(\mu\)m in length, oriented along the z-axis, with a 0.5 \(\mu\)m radius, and positioned at (-1,1,0). To obtain a conical shape, set the parameters sidewall_angle and reference_plane.

cyl = tidy3d.Cylinder(center=(-1,1,0), radius=0.5, length=2, axis=2)
