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

NAME
       wire - Creates a	BRL-CAD	.g file	containing wiring or fuel lines.

SYNOPSIS
       wire [options...]

DESCRIPTION
       wire is a program to create a BRL-CAD database of solid wires or	fuel
       lines. The user enters the coordinates of the starting and ending
       points of the different segments	of wires along with the	radius at each
       of these	points.	Currently the program is limited to 10 segments. This
       number may be changed by	changing the variable MAXSEG. MAXSEG may be no
       greater than 100	with out changing other	parts of the program. The
       wires are composed of cones and spheres.	This program is	designed to be
       run interactively.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1. Interactive wire Session

	   Enter mged file name	(25 char max).
		wire.g
	   Enter the number of segments	(maximum of 10).
		3
	   Enter starting point	of segment # 1.
		0 0 0
	   Enter radius	at the starting	point of segment # 1.
		.25
	   Enter ending	point of segment # 1.
		0 5 -3
	   Enter radius	at the ending point of segment # 1.
		.25
	   Enter ending	point of segment # 2.
		0 10 -3
	   Enter radius	at the ending point of segment # 2.
		.25
	   Enter ending	point of segment # 3.
		0 12 -2
	   Enter radius	at the ending point of segment # 3.
		.25

	   mged	file created:  wire.g
	   Segment # 1:	 (0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000)	0.250000
		      (0.000000, 5.000000, -3.000000)0.250000
	   Segment # 2:	 (0.000000, 5.000000, -3.000000) 0.250000
		      (0.000000, 10.000000, -3.000000)0.250000
	   Segment # 3:	 (0.000000, 10.000000, -3.000000) 0.250000
		      (0.000000, 12.000000, -2.000000)0.250000

       In this example a wire of three segments	is made. These segments	are
       joined together with spheres. All dimensions are	in millimeters.
