|showtherm model.g objects...|
Showtherm is an interactive program that ray-traces a BRL-CAD geometry file that does not include air and as a region is hit the temperature is looked up in a temperature output file. This file may be either a PRISM temperature output file or a generic temperature output file.
Showtherm then creates an output file that is readable by Analyzer2 (an X-windows program written by Glen Durfee), ir-X, or ir-sgi. These programs will graphically showtherm the image with temperatures being represented by different colors.
The following is an example from an interactive session.
$ showtherm test.veh.g vehicle Type of output file to be read 0=>PRISM, 1=>generic. 0 Enter name of the PRISM output file to be read (26 char max). veh.prm Enter the number of regions in the PRISM file, must be more than eight (not including the background). 18 Enter name of region # & name file to be read (26 char max). veh.f.rnn Enter name of output file (26 char max). veh.dis Enter the elapsed time to create graphical representation of. 4 Number of regions (including the background): 19 7/19/1984 7.000000:0.000000 Prism out file read. Region # & name file opened. The number of regions read from the output file and the region # & name file was the same, 18 (does not include background in number). Building directory. File: test.veh.g Database Title: test vehicle for use with irprep programs vehicle loaded The number of regions read from the output file, the region # & name file, and the .g file are all equal. The number of regions read, including the background is 19 Preparation started.
Minimum & maximum X: -3001.000000 - 3714.000000 Minimum & maximum Y: -1350.000000 - 1350.000000 Minimum & maximum Z: 0.000000 - 2500.000000 Center of bounding sphere: 356.500000, 0.000000, 1250.000000 Radius of bounding sphere: 3829.551456 Enter multiplication factor for radius. .75 Enter grid size. 512 Enter azimuth & elevation. 35 25 gridsize: 512 x 512 azimuth: 35.000000 degrees elevation: 25.000000 degrees $
