Thanks! A torus primitive seems standard for most modelers but tori aren’t that commonly used so manufacturing one is good enough.
Always a balance between too many or too complex tools and too few. I could draw pictures in dirt with my fingers so why do I need Hexagon or pencils? I’d like to see more abilities built in to the primitives in Hexagon but so far I like its tool set. It doesn’t need four million tools to do what a good set of a few can. Like you said, circle, thickness, easy.
