Pick the center and radius for the base circle.

Sphere options


Draws the sphere based on three points that define a circumference and a point to establish the location.

4Point steps

1. Pick three points, or two points and a Radius, to define a circle that will lie on the sphere.
2. If no Radius is specified, pick a fourth point to specify the sphere's location.

The fourth point sets the size of a sphere constrained by the circle.
