Net of an Oblique Circular Cylinder


Creating an oblique circular cylinder isn't as easy as it seems. At first you might think that you can make one by simply cutting off the ends of a tube at a slant. However, this produces a cylinder with ellipses as bases, not circles. Creating the net of an oblique circular cylinder took some heavy mathematics.
