|tankill-g [-n] [-t tolerance] [-i input_tankill_file] [-o database.g]|
tankill-g converts the specified input_tankill_file to a BRL-CAD database.g file. The tolerance provided is the maximum distance (in mm) between two vertices at which they will be considered to be the same vertex. The -n option provides output in the form of NMG primitives rather than the default which is BOT objects. The input_tankill_file is expected to be in the TANKILL format used by the British Defense Research Agency. This is a simple triangular patch format where each object is described by a series of vertices. Triangular facets are built from the first, second, and third vertices; from the second, third, and fourth vertices; from the third, fourth and fifth; and so on. Each object is converted to a single BOT object which is then placed into its own region and assigned the component code provided in the TANKILL file.
