Graphic for Conic Sections

I think many people--teachers in particular--are interested to use
Mathematica to generate graphics that illustrate conic sections. I have
completed writing a few Mathematica programs that does this.

The program will generates graphics of a double cone and slicing plane
of arbitrary angles, together with their intersections and Dandelin
spheres.

You may get these Mathematica programs along with examples of their
graphics at my web page
