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[edit]

fence—make a model of a fence

mged—multi-device geometry editor. Start here.

burst—PDAM input generator

tire—make a model of a tire

vegetation—make a model of a tree.

Model Interrogation[edit]

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