English term or phrase:thin torus
Suppose we have a collection of primitive objects (each in their own object coordinates), such
as a cylinder and a torus. How can we combine these to model a bicycle wheel? We can think of a wheel as a large thin torus, with many long thin cylinders within it for the spokes.
First we scale the objects to the correct size, rotate to the correct (3D) orientation, then translate to the fina destination.
