The Sphere3D provides an excellent starting point for organic shapes.
The Cube3D is a simple geometric cube. Using the Initialize sub-palette, you can define shapes with more than 4 sides. You can also twist this object so it’s screw-shaped.
The Cylinder3D is a simple geometric cylinder. Using the Intialize sub-palette, you can also define a hole in the cylinder to create a pipe.
The Cone3D is a simple geometric cone. Using the Initialize sub-palette, you can also define a ‘gemstone’ shape with fewer sides.
The Ring3D is a geometric ring shape. Using the Initialize sub-palette, you can also define partial rings which taper to a point — like claws or horns.
The Plane3D is a flat, square plane.
The Circle3D is a flat disc.
The Arrow3D is an arrow which can be pointed in any direction. Using the Initialize sub-palette, you can customize an arrow of any shape.
The Spiral3D is a snail-like shape that can be described using sliders.
The Helix3D is a spring-like object that can be described by drawing a number of profiles that define its shape, profile and thickness.
The Gear3D is a mechanical-gear object. Using the Initialize sub-palette you can customize many details about this object’s shape.
The Terrain3D enables you to define two profiles — one describes its contours from left to right, the other describes its contours from top to bottom. These modifiers are found in the Initialize sub-palette when this tool is selected.
The SweepProfile3D enables you to draw a profile outline, and ‘lathe’ that profile around an axis. This modifier is found in the Initialize sub-palette when this tool is selected.Sphereinder3D
The Sphereinder3D is a unique sausage-shaped object whose dimensions and curvature can be defined using the Initialize sub-palette.
