    Hi Folks!

    I've submitted the free package on the Asset Store named Free Primitives. It contains 15 procedural primitives for your disposal! I always wanted to create primitives with different parameters, however Unity only offers several hardcoded models.

    Primitive list:
    - Box, WireBox, OutlinedBox
    - Quad, Plane, Disk
    - Sphere, GeoSphere
    - Cone
    - Cylinder
    - Gengon
    - Tube
    - Torus
    - Arrow
    - and finally classic Utah Teapot!

    Creating primitives as easy as dropping prefabs to the scene (Prefabs folder contains all the prefabs). Then just change the parameters. It's also possible to save meshes to the assets. All primitives except for the arrow have uv coordinates.

    Follow me on Twitter. You may also want to look at my other package Math Library for Unity.

    Here are some screens of the primitives (click on the thumbnails to enlarge)

    Enjoy and post your feedback! :)

    Since the package has not been approved and no actual reason was stated, I've uploaded the package to the Dropbox.

    Here's the link: Free Primitives

    Grab your copy of the teapot now! :D

    Unity is good at kicking submissions back with no explanation whatsoever to allow the developer to know what to fix or change. You would think as much money as they rake in from the asset store that they would have more support for their asset developers.

    they only reason they kicked back the submission is because they have a primitive version made by their developers which they sell for $5, and allowing this free version on the asset store would mean that they would lose money

    The dropbox link worked like a charm. @thaiwas drag the Torus prefab into the scene, then click "Create" button in the Inspector panel while Torus is selected in scene. It will then create the mesh and it becomes visible.
    Just tested this on Unity. 2018.2.5f.
