Constant: integer PRIM_TYPE_SCULPT = 7;

The integer constant PRIM_TYPE_SCULPT has the value 7

PRIM_TYPE_SCULPT is a parameter of PRIM_TYPE used to make a prim into a sculpty of specific shape and type.
Sculpted Prims: FAQ


[ PRIM_TYPE, PRIM_TYPE_SCULPT, string map, integer type ]
• string map a texture in the inventory of the prim this script is in or a UUID of a texture
• integer type PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_* flag with optional additional PRIM_SCULPT_FLAG_* flags OR'ed on

For use with llSetPrimitiveParams and llSetLinkPrimitiveParams

type Flags Style Description
PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_SPHERE 1 Sphere Converge top & bottom, stitch left side to right
PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_TORUS 2 Torus Stitch top to bottom, stitch left side to right
PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_PLANE 3 Plane No stitching or converging
PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_CYLINDER 4 Cylinder Stitch left side to right.
PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_A 5 Mesh model See: Mesh
PRIM_SCULPT_FLAG_INVERT 0x40 Invert Render inside out (inverts the normals).
PRIM_SCULPT_FLAG_MIRROR 0x80 Mirror Render an X axis mirror of the sculpty.

PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_MASK can be used to filter out the PRIM_SCULPT_FLAG_* flags from the type to determine the PRIM_SCULPT_TYPE_* flag. The main application of this would be when using llGetPrimitiveParams.


  • If map is missing from the prim's inventory and it is not a UUID or it is not a texture then an error is shouted on DEBUG_CHANNEL.
  • If map is a UUID then there are no new asset permissions consequences for the object.
    • The resulting object develops no new usage restrictions that might have occurred if the asset had been placed in the prims inventory.
