I would like to create a preview of wave propagation from a tower. Nothing fancy and definitely no analysis. I just want to “spread” a cone from the top of the tower and have objects (buildings) block the propagation to show the “blind spots”. Unfortunately, I don’t know which function can do it. I tried to look for some wave propagation tutorials but all I can find are architectural tutorials about wave roofs or walls. I also thought about placing the sun on the top of the tower and using the shadow as a pointer, but I think there may be a better solution.
Tower with buildings
Tower with propagation cone
Tower with propagation cone and “blind spot”
I would be grateful for pointing me in the right direction. I think there must be some clever way to do this but I don’t know even where to start.
