shell

SHELL(nged)                   BRL-CAD User Commands                  SHELL(nged)



NAME
       shell - Separates the specified NMG shape into its constituent shells.

SYNOPSIS
       shells [NMG_shape]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

EXAMPLES
       The example shows the use of the shells command to break an NMG shape
       into its constituent shells.

       Example 1. Break an NMG shape into its constituent shells.

       mged>object.nmg

       Breaks the NMG shape named object.nmg into its constituent shells.
