dxfsphere - generate a triangle mesh approximating a sphere by recursive subdivision in
.dxf format using libdime


dxfsphere [-c] [-t] [-i] [-o outfile] level


This manual page documents briefly the dxfsphere command. This manual page was written
for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual
page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

dxfsphere is a program that
generate a triangle mesh approximating a sphere by
recursive subdivision. First approximation is an platonic
solid; each level of refinement increases the number of
triangles by a factor of 4.

Level 3 (128 triangles for an octahedron) is a good tradeoff if
gouraud shading is used to render the database.


level level is an integer >= 1 setting the recursion level (default 1).

causes triangles to be generated with vertices in counterclockwise
order as viewed from the outside in a RHS coordinate system.
The default is clockwise order.

-t, starts with a tetrahedron instead of an octahedron

-i, starts with a icosahedron instead of an octahedron

-o, outfile (default is stdout)

-h, Show useage.
