option sets a material code that will be assigned to all the regions created (default is 1).
flag indicates that the model should not be rotated, translated, or scaled, but left in
the same orientation and size as it was created in
This allows the user to convert parts that are referenced by previously converted
assemblies, so that the transformation matrix in the referencing assembly will
size and position the part.
option sets an RT debug flags (see raytrace.h).

menu. This menu option is a Pro/Develop application produced by the USARL.
Note that the routine documented here is obsolete, and only maintained for compatibility with older versions of Pro/Engineer. The current method of converting from Pro/Engineer to BRL-CAD is still a two step process, but a newer Pro/Toolkit application must be installed (see âinstall.docâ in the âpro-engineerâ directory of the BRL-CAD distribution). From within Pro/Engineer, the âproe-brlâ option must be selected from the âFileâ menu, and the user will be prompted for an output file name, a starting ident number, a maximum tessellation error, and an additional curvature correction. The output from this new routine, is a Tcl script that may be converted to a BRL-CAD model using âasc2gâ or by sourcing the file during an MGED session.
