Use the examples in this chapter to get to know the properties you can use to customize the standard set of geometries available from Three.js. It is also a good thing that when you start with geometries, you choose a basic material; don't go directly for the complex materials, but start simple with THREE.MeshBasicMaterial with the wireframe set to true, or THREE.MeshNormalMaterial.
