I get the following with the Student Version of Mathematica when issuing this command:

Show[Graphics3D[Cylinder[2,3,20]]];

Mathematica responds with:

Graphics3D::"gprim":
Cylinder[2, 3, 20] was encountered where a Graphics3D primitive or directive was expected. More…

Is the cylinder shape included w/ the Student version ? I think yes, because it sometimes works. What are the appropriate "Needs" commands that ensure that I have the right package(s) loaded -- I believe that I have some multiple reference or context problem with the graphics primitive associated with "Cylinder".

If anyone can shed light on the minimal notebook content needed to properly use "Cylinder", I would be most grateful --

Sincerely,
(* A mathematica newbie *)
