This is a list of the Unix commands provided by BRL-CAD. In the spirit of Unix there are over 400 commands that each do a single thing well and can be used together as you see fit.

Modelling

fence—make a model of a fence

mged—multi-device geometry editor. Start here.

tire—make a model of a tire

vegetation—make a model of a tree.

Model Interrogation

rtshot—pass a ray through a model to see what it hits.

Translators to BRL-CAD

Translators from BRL-CAD

g-stl—convert a .g file to a .stl file

g-vrml—convert a .g file to vrml 2.0

Rendering

rtwizard—Tcl/tk-based front end to the raytracer.

rtedge—Creates line-art renders of models.
