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

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