MGED CMD shells

shells

Syntax

shells NMG_shape


Argument(s)

NMG_shape
Valid BRL-CAD NMG Primitive.


Return Value(s)

No Return Values for this command.


Description

The "shells" command separates the specified NMG shape into its constituent shells. Each shell is written to the database as a separate NMG object with a name of the form "shell" with a number appended to make the name unique. If the NMG has only one shell, then only one new object will be created. This differs from the decompose command in that decompose will actually break the object into a number of separate shells if possible.

Example(s)

mged> shells object.nmg
Break the NMG shape named object.nmg into its constituent shells.
