Adding a Cylinder

Cylinders are very important modeling pieces, and are used to create chair legs, poles, columns, rails, and more. Cylinders can use as few as 5 sides or as many as 36 sides, depending on the complexity of the object you are creating and the amount of smoothness needed. Cylinders can also be used to create cone-shaped objects.

To add a Cylinder:

1.   Click the Add Cylinder button that is found near the top of the screen under the Modeling tab.

2.   Click an area of your landscape to place the center of the cylinder. Press the Esc key to cancel.

3.   Click a different area of your landscape to place the outer edge of the cylinder. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place the cylinder’s center and then press the Enter key.

The picture below illustrates a cylinder shown in the Perspective view.
