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

NAME
       facedef - Allows	the user to redefine any face of an ARB8 shape.

SYNOPSIS
       facedef {####} [[a] | [b] | [c] | [d] | [parameters]]

DESCRIPTION
       Allows the user to redefine any face of an ARB8 shape. The user must be
       in Primitive Edit Mode with an ARB selected for editing.	The optional
       parameters may be omitted, and MGED will	prompt for the missing values.
       The options are as follows:

       a
	   Specify the new location of this face by providing coefficients for
	   its plane equation: Ax + By + Cz = D

       b
	   Specify the new location of this face using three points.

       c
	   Specify the new location of this face using rotation	and fallback
	   angles.

       d
	   Specify the new location of this face by changing the D value in
	   the plane equation.

       q
	   Return to MGED prompt.

EXAMPLES
       The first example shows the use of the facedef command with the a
       option to redefine a specified face so that it is in another plane. The
       second example shows the	use of the facedef command with	the b option
       to redefine a face so that it is	in another plane formed	by three
       points.

       Example 1. Moving a specified face so that it is	in another plane.

       mged> facedef 1234 a 1 0	0 20
	   Moves face 1234 such	that it	is in the yz plane at x= 20.

       Example 2.  Moving a specified face so that it is in another plane
       formed by three points.

       mged facedef 5678 b 0 0 10 10 0 10 10 10	10
	   Moves face 5678 such	that it	is in the plane	formed by the three
	   points (0 0 10), (10	0 10), and (10 10 10).
