Floor Height

The height of the floor where the primitive shape is built by LMB Dragging.

Segments

The count of side faces

Radius

A radius of a cylinder

Angle Snap

When you drag the mouse with this property on, the disk’s direction will snap to every 90 degree.

Border Check

If this is enabled, the ray cast will run and it checks if the created cylinder is beyond the other polygons. It might cause a stop for a second at the beginning.

Glue

The cylinder with this property enabled will be glued to the polygon where it started to be created. It means that the hidden part of the floor polygon by the created cylinder is removed.
