I vote for MORE. That is, More Primitives for our expanding world of parametric modeling. And I suggest its time for organic primitives…the primitives found in nature.
Id like prisms, antiprisms, frustums and everyones new life-of-the party shape…a SCUTOID.
Yes Scutoids! Just this summer the discovery of Scutoids hit the news and has made quite a splash. How did this elude us for this long?
Scutoids are very common in nature and are VERY cool. Its bizarre that we only recently have a mathematically conception of it and name for it. The shape, however odd, is a building block of multicellular organisms; complex life might never have emerged on Earth without it!

When someone asks you what you want in R21…the first thing on your list, dont forget…is Scutoids. Once we get the primitive well next want a Scutoidal cloner type…because…these babies are all about packing it in.
