Why doesn’t Blender make a mesh ring?

There is a torus option which is close enough surely…

Go Space -> Add -> Mesh -> Torus

Tweak the options, and bam, mesh ring :smiley:

you can also add a bezier curve
turn off Front and back
and then dial up the Bevel Depth

(also change the Resolution to the desired amount)

then when it looks right
convert it to a mesh

there are a few more steps but it’s more interactive than the other option
