GENBOX(1) General Commands Manual GENBOX(1)
genrbox - generate a RADIANCE description of a box
genrbox mat name xsiz ysiz zsiz [ -i ][ -r rad | -b bev ]
Genbox produces a RADIANCE scene description of a parallelepiped with one corner at the origin and the opposite corner at (xsiz, ysiz,
zsiz). The sides of the box will be parallel to the three coordinate planes. The surfaces that make up the box will be modified by mat
and their identifiers will begin with name. The -i option can be used to produce a box with inward directed surface normals. The -r
option can be used to specify the radius for rounded edges. The -b option can be used to specify the indentation for beveled edges.
To produce a rectangular box made of wood with beveled edges:
genrbox wood box1 5 8 3 -b .5 > box1
Because spheres and cylinders are used to construct boxes with rounded edges, a transparent box of this type appears quite messy.
