Highcharts 3D Cylinder Chart

In the previous chapters, we learned how to setup highcharts library and how to create a chart with required configurations using highcharts library in our webpage. Now, we will learn how to create a 3d cylinder chart using highcharts library with examples.

Highcharts 3D Cylinder Chart Example

Following is the example of creating a 3D cylinder chart by setting the required chart properties using highcharts library.

                    options3d: {

                        enabled: true,

                        alpha: 15,

                        beta: 15,

                        depth: 50,

                        viewDistance: 25



                title: {

                    text: 'Highcharts Cylinder Chart'


                plotOptions: {

                    series: {

                        depth: 25,

                        colorByPoint: true



                series: [{

                    data: [29.9, 71.5, 106.4, 129.2, 144.0, 176.0, 135.6, 148.5, 216.4, 194.1, 95.6, 54.4],

                    name: 'Cylinders',

                    showInLegend: false







    <div id="container" style="width: 100%; height: 400px;"> </div>



If you observe the above example, we created a 3D cylinder chart using highcharts library with required properties.


When we execute the above highcharts example, we will get the result like as shown below.
