I think this is a great idea, personally.
An interactive preview of the item being added would be fantastic too (a small 3d window in the pop-up). the interactive preview could infact be an input as well. i.e. draggin upwards on a UV sphere will add rings. and dragging to the right will add segments. text inputs are often fairly disjointed from the users 'intention' which is why i would favour also adding a preview.
It sounds like a great idea making it a single popup with options though.
