OK, the 5 regular solids from middle school geometry:

Tetrahedron, Cube, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron

All are drawn with 12" edge length, so scalable in feet.

Fun, but not so easy to draw in VWX (except the cube).

Folding to correct angle requires a trick.

Anyway, use em if you need em.

Here's wikipedia info about these shapes

Very nice! Thank you.

This reminds me, submitting a feature request for a set of configurable 3D primitives as a 3D modeling tool. Basic stuff like toroids, all the regular -hedrons etc.

Aaaaaand I just found out we have a Torus object already... but it isn't listed in any workspace under 3D modeling (as one would expect) nor is it listed anywhere within the Help that I can see. Submitting as an issue now.

Vw needs all of the basic geometry shapes in parametric format. Preferably resizable on screen via handles.

The Deform capability also needs a Shear capability.

I'll clarify controllable reshape handles in the request.
