|nastran-g [-t tolerance] [-t tolerance_distance] [-n] [-m] -i nastran_input_file -o database.g|
nastran-g converts the specified nastran_input_file to a BRL-CAD database.g file. The tolerance_distance provided is the maximum distance (in mm) between two vertices at which they will be considered to be the same vertex. The -n option requests that the output solids created from NASTRAN CQUAD4 or CTRIA3 elements be stored in the BRL-CAD file as NMG solids rather than the default BOT solids. The -m option indicates that the units of the NASTRAN file are millimeters, rather than the default inches. The converter currently only handles the CROD, CBAR, CTRIA3, and CQUAD4 elements.
