NAME

in - Allows the user to type in the arguments needed to create a shape with the name new_shape_name of the type shape_type. The command may be invoked with no arguments, and it will prompt the user for all needed information.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

in [[-f] | [-s]] [new_shape_name] [shape_type] {parameters}

DESCRIPTION

Allows the user to type in the arguments needed to create a shape with the name new_shape_name of the type shape_type. The command may be invoked with no arguments, and it will prompt the user for all needed information. The -s option will invoke the primitive edit mode on the new shape immediately after creation. The -f option does not draw the new shape, and therefore the -s option may not be used in conjunction with -f. The possible values for shape_type are:

o

o arb8 -- ARB (eight vertices)

o

o arb7 -- ARB (seven vertices).

o

o arb 6 -- ARB (six vertices).

o

o arb 5 -- ARB (five vertices).

o

o arb 4 -- ARB (four vertices).

o

o arbn -- Arbitrary polyhedron with arbitrary number of vertices (plane equations).

o

o bot -- Bag of Triangles.

o

o dsp -- Displacement Map.

o

o pipe -- Pipe (run of connected pipe or wire).

o

o ebm -- Extruded Bit Map.

o

o vol -- Voxels.

o

o hf -- Height Field deprecated, see dsp.

o

o ars -- Arbitrary Faceted Solid.

o

o half -- Half Space.

o

o sph -- Ellipsoid (center and radius).

o

o ell -- Ellipsoid (center and three semi-axes).

o

o ellg -- Ellipsoid (foci and chord length).

o

o ell1 -- Ellipsoid (center, one semi-axis, and a radius of revolution).

o

o tor -- Torus.

o

o tgc -- Truncated General Cone (most general TGC).

o

o tec -- TGC (top radii are scaled from base radii).

o

o rec -- TGC (right elliptical cylinder).

o

o trc -- TGC (truncated right circular cone).

o

o rcc -- TGC (right circular cylinder).

o

o box -- ARB (vertex and three vectors).

o

o raw -- ARB (right angle wedge).

o

o rpp -- ARB (axis aligned rectangular parallelepiped).

o

o rpc -- Right Parabolic Cylinder.

o

o rhc -- Right Hyperbolic Cylinder.

o

o epa -- Elliptical Paraboloid.

o

o ehy -- Elliptical Hyperboloid.

o

o eto -- Elliptical Torus.

o

o part -- Particle.

EXAMPLES

The example shows the use of the in command to create a shape of a specified type.

Example 1. Create a new shape in the form of a right angle wedge.

mged> in new1 raw 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0

Creates an ARB named new1 in the form of a right angle wedge.
