It is...
although a cylinder as a 'prism' has thin rectangular faces

In Sketchup it has a 'Surface' too but that consists of 'Faces' with smoothed 'Edges' between them!
A 'cheat' ;)

I've made the matching 'Prism' tool here viewtopic.php?p=287169#p287169
So that you can now make 'prisms' AND 'antiprisms', with any number of sides and size length.

Here's v1.1 viewtopic.php?p=287140#p287140
It fixes a rare potential 'PI' glitch if you don't have certain other scripts installed...
