Adding a Cylinder

Cylinders can be used to create chair legs, poles, columns, rails, and more. Cylinders can use as few as 5 sides or as many as 60 sides, depending on the complexity of the object you are creating and how smooth you want it to be. Cylinders can also be used to create cone-shaped objects.

To add a Cylinder:

1.   From the Modeling tab, click Add Cylinder.

2.   Click to place the center of the cylinder. Press the Esc key to cancel.

3.   Click to place the outer edge (radius) of the cylinder. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place the cylinder’s center and then press Enter.
