Can anyone please tell me how to divide a 3D Cylinder in equal parts. A Cylinder has three fields as defined in the API, TOP, BODY, BOTTOM. I have divided my cylinder in these parts. Now, i only want the Cylinder.BODY (i mean the surface of the cylinder) to be divided into equal parts. Each divided part will have a node with text, background color and different attributes associated to it. I am using Java 3D API.
