I often use CONE to generate concentric circles. One thing that bugs me about it is you MUST give it some height before it'll add the interior circles. Feh.

Another shortcoming is cones always point along the + axis: you cannot drag the box and make it point the other way. Me no likee.

EDIT: (it's actually worse than I thought: even if you've dragged it out, the circles disappear when you flatten it before generation. ::eyeroll:: Thaaaaaaaaanks, long-dead coder.)

EDIT2: another option that would save a couple steps would be "CONE: NO BOTTOM", which would generate the same thing, but without the big n-gon on one end.


To summarize:
1 ) Give cone an optional direction, +/-.
2 ) Display SEGMENTS at all times.
3 ) Allow exclusion of n-gon on big end of cone.
