The Guide_anyshape Component

Reflecting surface (guide and mirror) with any shape, defined from an OFF file.



This is a reflecting object component. Its shape is defined from an OFF file,
given with its file name. The object size is set as given from the file, where
dimensions should be in meters. The bounding box may be re-scaled by specifying
xwidth,yheight,zdepth parameters. The object may optionally be centered when
using 'center=1'.

The reflectivity is specified either from the usual parametric description
R0,Qc,alpha,W,m, or from a reflectivity file 'reflect' with a 2 column
format [q(Angs-1) R(0-1)].

The complex OFF/PLY geometry option handles any closed non-convex polyhedra.
It supports the OFF and NOFF file format but not COFF (colored faces).
Such files may be generated from XYZ data using:
qhull < coordinates.xyz Qx Qv Tv o > geomview.off
powercrust coordinates.xyz
and viewed with geomview or java -jar jroff.jar (see below).
The default size of the object depends of the OFF file data, but its
bounding box may be resized using xwidth,yheight and zdepth.
PLY geometry files are also supported.

This component does take into account gravitation accurately.
