The LED cylinder light is a great way to add a creative and unique lighting element to your space. The cylinder shape provides a sleek design that works well with both contemporary and traditional style decor. They are often used in commercial and residential spaces, ranging from foyers to living rooms, patios and decks to create an interesting accent that adds both ambience and bursts of quality light to the space.
The cylinder LED wall mount light provides a unique lighting effect that is both downlighting and uplighting all in one fixture, making it perfect for corridors and lobbies. They are also popular as outdoor rated cylinder sconces that can be used to highlight architectural features or other exterior elements of the building.
This light offers both Position and Rotation controls along with Radiance, Shadow Type, Samples and Cylinder Radius and Length. To see these settings adjusted in 3D view use the Item Transform tool that will give you additional handles to control the size of the cylinder directly in the 3D view.
The Cylinder Light is a physically accurate light model that has the standard fall off with distance of a physical light. For example, the light intensity falls off according to the inverse square of the distance, meaning it is half as bright at twice the distance. In most cases this will be an appropriate value but if you want the cylinder to behave more like a point light you can increase this value to achieve that behavior. The light can also be made visible to cameras and reflective or refracting surfaces by enabling these options. You can also provide a label that will appear for any Light Path Expression output you generate with the light.
