primitiveQuad operation
Synopsis
primitiveQuad()
primitiveQuad(width, length)
The primitiveQuad operation inserts a quad geometry into the scope of the current shape.
 If no width and length is given the bounding box coincides with the scope. Zero scope sizes are handled the same way as in the i operation.
 If dimensions are specified the quad is positioned in the xz center of the scope lying on y=0.
The quad has texture coordinates on the first texture layer (COLORMAP).
Parameters
 width (float)
Width of the quad.  length (float)
Length of the quad.
Examples
Lot> rotateScope(0, 0, 90) // scope.sx is 0 primitiveQuad() texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted quad is fit into the current scope yz dimension. 

Lot> rotateScope(0, 0, 90) // scope.sx is 0 primitiveQuad(10,20) texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted quad has a width of 10, a length of 20 and is positioned in the yz center.

Synopsis
primitiveDisk()
primitiveDisk(nVertices)
primitiveDisk(nVertices,radius)
The primitiveDisk operation inserts a disk geometry into the scope of the current shape.
 If no radius is given the bounding box coincides with the scope. Zero scope sizes are handled the same way as in the i operation.
 If radius is specified the disk is positioned in the xzcenter of the scope lying on y=0.
The disk has texture coordinates on the first texture layer (COLORMAP).
Parameters
 nVertices (integer)
Number of vertices at the boundary of the disk. There must be at least 3 vertices. The default value is 16.  radius (float)
Radius of the disk.
Examples
Lot> rotateScope(90, 0, 0) // scope.sz is 0 primitiveDisk() texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted disk has 16 vertices and is fit into the current scope xy dimension. 

Lot> rotateScope(90, 0, 0) // scope.sz is 0 primitiveDisk(8,10) texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted disk has 8 vertices, a radius of 10 and is positioned in the xy center.

Synopsis
primitiveCube()
primitiveCube(width,height,depth)
The primitiveCube operation inserts a cube geometry into the scope of the current shape.
 If no width, height and depth are given the bounding box coincides with the scope. Zero scope sizes are handled the same way as in the i operation.
 If dimensions are specified the cube is positioned in the xzcenter of the scope lying on y=0.
Parameters
 width (float)
Width of the cube.  height (float)
Height of the cube.  depth (float)
Depth of the cube.
Examples
Lot> primitiveCube() texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted cube is fit into the current scope. The scope's zero size is modified relative to the average of the two nonzero sizes. 

Lot> primitiveCube(10,15,20) texture("builtin:uvtest.png")The inserted cube has a width of 10, a height of 15, a depth of 20 and is positioned in the xz center.

primitiveSphere(sides,divisions)
primitiveSphere(sides,divisions,radius)
The primitiveSphere operation inserts a sphere geometry into the scope of the current shape.
 If no radius is given the bounding box coincides with the scope. Zero scope sizes are handled the same way as in the i operation.
