This article provides details about the Add Shape tool.
Description
The Add Shape Tool allows primitive shapes to be quickly added to a scene.
Usage
To use the Add Shape Tool, first hover over the Add Menu in the bottom left corner of the CAD interface. The menu will expand to show the tool:
Click the Add Shape icon to expand the list of primitive shapes:
Clicking on any of the shape icons will trigger a dialog box to build that shape. Each dialog box provides fields for shape-specific parameters and position. Add the shape to the scene by clicking the checkmark button on the bottom right of the shape dialog.
Cube
The cube builder will create a rectangular prism defined by the following parameters:
- dx: The length of the rectangular prism in the X direction
- dy: The length of the rectangular prism in the Y direction
- dz: The length of the rectangular prism in the Z direction
Cone
The cone builder will create a right, circular, truncated cone defined by the following parameters:
- r1: The radius of the base of the cone
- r2: The radius of the top of the cone
- h: The height of the cone measured along the Z axis
Sphere
The sphere builder will create a sphere defined by the following parameters:
- r: The radius of the sphere
Cylinder
The cylinder builder will create a right, circular cylinder defined by the following parameters:
- r: The radius of the cylinder
- h: The height of the cylinder measured along the Z axis
Torus
The torus builder will create a solid torus defined by the following parameters:
- r1: The radius of the torus measured from its origin
- r2: The radius of the circular profile used to sweep the torus
