In lightwave they have a capsule primitive object which I'm finding to use it more often than I thought.

I could export an .obj file or extrude half of a sphere then mirror it, but I thought it would be better to have it on your Shift+A shortcut with the rings and segments choices. anyways, I thing it's going to need some scripting knowledge to achieve that.

  1. Go to File > User Preferences > Add-ons and search for Add Mesh: Extra Objects and enable it.

    Make sure to Save User Settings to keep it that way.

  1. Shift+A > Mesh > Round Cube to add this object from the add-on.

2

  1. In the Tool Shelf or after pressing F6 select Operator Presets and choose Capsule.
  2. Switch Type to Edges - this will allow to control horizontal edge loops.

3

Now you can control capsule Radius, Length (by changing Z value), subdivision (Arc and Linear).
