cpi

Syntax

cpi old_tgc new_tgc


Argument(s)

old_tgc
Source TGC
new_tgc
New TGC


Return Value(s)

No Return Values for this command.


Description

The "cpi" command copies old_tgc (an existing TGC shape) to a new TGC shape (new_tgc), positions the new TGC such that its base vertex is coincident with the center of the top of old_tgc, and puts mged into the primitive edit state with new_tgc selected for editing. This command was typically used in creating models of wiring or piping runs; however, a pipe primitive has since been added to BRL-CAD to handle such requirements.


Example(s)

mged> cpi tgc_a tgc_b
Copy tgc_a to tgc_b and translate tgc_b to the end of tgc_a
