    General properties of primitives

    • General properties apply to all primitives  
    • Lockprevents an object from being modified by somebody else
    • Collision: if set, the object is treated as solid; avatars cannot walk through it.
    • Group: makes an object and all its child objects into one object.


    • The sphere has only one dimension, radius.
    • The default sphere is 1 meter in diameter.
    • You can deform the sphere by changing the scale.


    • The dimensions are HeightTopRadius and BottomRadius 
    • The 2 radius values can be different to make the cylinder into a cone.
    • The default values make a cylinder with diameter and height of 1 meter each.


    • The plane primitive is a simple two-dimensional rectangular object. 
    • The default size for this primitive is 1 meter square. 
    • The editable dimensions consist of width and depth.
    • Use this primitive to create window panes or for posters.
