Description

Constant: integer PRIM_TYPE_SPHERE = 3;

The integer constant PRIM_TYPE_SPHERE has the value 3

PRIM_TYPE_SPHERE is a parameter of PRIM_TYPE used to make prim into a sphere and to change specific properties that define the shape of that sphere.

PRIM_TYPE

[ PRIM_TYPE, PRIM_TYPE_SPHERE, integer hole_shape, vector cut, float hollow, vector twist, vector dimple ]
• integer hole_shape PRIM_HOLE_* flag
• vector cut x and y range from 0.0 to 1.0, x must be at least 0.05 smaller than y (z is ignored)
• float hollow ranges from 0.0 (solid) to 0.95 (maximum hollowed)
• vector twist ranges from -1.0 (-360 degree in the edit window) to 1.0 (+360 degree in the edit window) for both x and y (z is ignored)
• vector dimple x and y range from 0.0 to 1.0, x must be at least 0.05 smaller than y (z is ignored)
hole_shape Flags Shape hole_shape Flags Shape
PRIM_HOLE_DEFAULT 0x00 Default PRIM_HOLE_SQUARE 0x20 Square
PRIM_HOLE_CIRCLE 0x10 Circle PRIM_HOLE_TRIANGLE 0x30 Triangle

PRIM_TYPE_LEGACY

[ 1, PRIM_TYPE_SPHERE, vector cut, float hollow, vector dimple ]
• vector cut x and y range from 0.0 to 1.0, x must be at least 0.05 smaller than y (z is ignored)
• float hollow ranges from 0.0 (solid) to 0.95 (maximum hollowed)
• vector dimple x and y range from 0.0 to 1.0, x must be at least 0.05 smaller than y (z is ignored)

This is the old PRIM_TYPE format for the sphere (PRIM_TYPE used to be 1 instead of 9). Use the new format unless you are maintaining old code.
