I'm a beginner watching v2.x Youtube Tutorials. In them there is a add menu to define basic structure of the iconsphere. (Object Mode > Add > Mesh > Icosphere > [enter]. No menu, just the sphere.

Where is the menu in 3.0, or what is the equivalent? Add-ons? modifier?

As soon as you've added the icosphere you should see a settings dialog in the bottom left of the 3D window. You may have to click the down arrow (indicated) to expand it.

enter image description here Note that you must alter any of the settings before moving or applying any other transformation to the icosphere. You can however bring back the dialog with F9 if it's disappeared but only if you've not changed anything else in the interim. This applies to most other objects too.

  • $\begingroup$ The dialog was disappearing under my zoom add-on. I can just see its top. But now I've got it - thank you so much $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Quite a few folks haven't even noticed it's there *without any other addon dialogs in the way! :^) $\endgroup$
