Another flat, finite object available with POV-Ray is the disc. The disc is infinitely thin, it has no thickness. If you want a disc with true thickness you should use a very short cylinder. A disc shape may be defined by:

        <Center>, <Normal>, Radius [, Hole_Radius]

Disc default values:


The vector <Center> defines the x, y, z coordinates of the center of the disc. The <Normal> vector describes its orientation by describing its surface normal vector. This is followed by a float specifying the Radius. This may be optionally followed by another float specifying the radius of a hole to be cut from the center of the disc.

Note: The inside of a disc is the inside of the plane that contains the disc. Also note that it is not constrained by the radius of the disc. Bicubic Patch Mesh
