This paper addresses the problem of finding analytically the limbs and cusps of generalized cylinders. Orthographic projections of generalized cylinders whose axis is straight and whose axis is an arbitrary 3D curve are considered in turn. In both cases, the general equations of the limbs and cusps are given. They are solved for three classes of generalized cylinders: solids of revolution, straight homogeneous generalized cylinders whose scaling sweeping rule is a polynomial of degree less than or equal to 5 and generalized cylinders whose axis is an arbitrary 3D curve but the cross section is circular and constant. Examples of limbs and cusps found for each class are given. Extensions and applications of the results presented are discussed.
