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

NAME
       picket_fence - Creates a	BRL-CAD	.g file	containing picket fences.

SYNOPSIS
       picket_fence [filename] [prefix]	[height] [spacing] [x0]	[y0] [z0]
		    [...] [xn] [yn] [zn] [-r]

DESCRIPTION
       picket_fence creates a geometry file in filename	of a picket fence. All
       parameters for the fence	are in mm. If more than	two points are
       specified it will generate a fence with multiple	sections connecting
       the points. Parts of the	fence are created starting at the origin. The
       two backing boards are created in the negative x	halfspace. The pickets
       are created in the positive x halfspace and translated down the y-axis
       to their	proper positions. The entire segment is	then rotated and
       translated to the position specified by the user. To create a box of
       fence with the pickets on the outside, the points must be specified in
       a counter-clockwise order. Parts	of the model are named according to
       the format

	   <prefix><partname><sec_name><[>part_num<].<obj_type>

       The _prefix_ above is the second	argument to the	program. The spacing
       parameter specifies the amount of space (in mm) between pickets.	The -r
       option specifies	round fronts for the pickets.

EXAMPLES
       Creates an example fence	two meters high	and six	meters long with
       fifteen millimeter spaces between the pickets. It will start the	fence
       at the origin and extend	it to (100,6000,0).
