The Shape property sets the type of shape the object has.

The Enum/PartType enum controls the shape value, and has three possible shapes:

Shape/Value Description
Ball A spherical shape, like a basketball.
Cylinder A rod-like shape, like a tin can.
Block The default, brick shape.

To obtain custom part shapes, you can use a MeshPart instead of a Part.

Code Samples

Create a Part in a Script

The script below spawns a new Part instance and sets several of the part’s properties.

Most notably, the script sets the Part/Shape property to Enum/PartType|Enum.PartType.Ball. It also names the part JurrasicPart (hehe), anchors it, makes it a child of Workspace, and sets its color to white.
