In this video, learn about predefined prismatic shapes.
- [Instructor] Here I'm going to talk…about cylinder and sphere.…I'm just going create a new file.…We'll go into Start,…Generative Shape Design,…there's my new file…and I'm just going to simply place…a point on the XY plane.…Place it anywhere you like.…For the sphere,…all it's going to do is ask you for your center.…Once I specify my center point,…you can see I have my parallel,…start and end angles…and my meridian start and end angles.…If you've ever looked at a globe,…then you'll know the difference between longitudinal…and latitudinal lines.…
So, as you can see here,…I can adjust my longitudinal and latitudinal lines…for my meridians and my parallels.…You can also adjust the size.…If you want a complete sphere,…all you need to do is come in…and specify create the whole sphere.…There's your sphere.…I'm going to go ahead and hide this.…Next is what's called cylinder…and for this this is basically the circle…is drawn for you…and you're just going to determine the size,…center point and the direction,…so specify my point,…
