This quickstart tutorial shows how you can use the Circle from Edges SOP to automate and generate convenient circular geometry - in this case, a panel of rivets. Circle from Edges is different than the Make Circle option in the Edit SOP, as it allows you to make multiple geometry selections from a Group field and convert them all to circles, with specified radii.
