Includes, man pages, and development libraries for the GLE Tubing and
gle.3gle The GLE Tubing and Extrusion Library is a graphics application programming interface (API). The library consists of a number of "C" language subroutines for... gleExtrusion.3gle Extrude arbitrary 2D contour along arbitrary 3D path. The argument "contour" specifies the 2D contour to be extruded, while the argument "point_array" specifies... gleHelicoid.3gle Generalized Torus. Similar to gleSpiral, except contour is a circle. Uses gleSpiral to draw. gleLathe.3gle Sweep an arbitrary contour along a helical path. The sweep will be performed as a shear along the z-axis, so that the orientation of the contour is displaced... glePolyCone.3gle Draw polycone, specified as a polyline with radii. Note that neither the very first segment, nor the very last segment are drawn. The first and last segments... glePolyCylinder.3gle Draw polycylinder, specified as a polyline. Note that neither the very first segment, nor the very last segment are drawn. The first and last segments serve... gleScrew.3gle Draws screw-type shapes. Takes a contour, and extrudes it along the z-axis, from a start z value of startz to an end z-value of endz. During the extrusion, it... gleSetJoinStyle.3gle Query and set the GLE join style flags. This word is a bitwise OR of the flags described below. The initial join style is TUBE_JN_ANGLE | TUBE_JN_CAP |... gleSetNumSides.3gle Query and set the GLE cylinder and cone roundness. When GLE draws a cylinder or a cone, it approximates the circular cross-section with a polygon (of 20 sides... gleSpiral.3gle Sweep an arbitrary contour along a helical path. The axis of the helix lies along the modeling coordinate z-axis. An affine transform can be applied as the... gleSuperExtrusion.3gle Extrude arbitrary 2D contour along arbitrary 3D path, specifying local affine transformations. As the contour is extruded, the affine will be applied to the... gleTextureMode.3gle In addition to the default glTexGen modes that are supplied by OpenGL, the tubing library also contains some of its own automatic texture coordinate generation... gleToroid.3gle Generalized Torus. Similar to gleLathe, except contour is a circle. Uses gleLathe to draw. gleTwistExtrusion.3gle Extrude arbitrary 2D contour along arbitrary 3D path, specifying local rotations (twists). As the contour is extruded, it will be twisted by the amount...
