Since 1979, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory has been developing and distributing the BRL-CAD constructive solid geometry CSG modeling package for a wide range of military and industrial applications. The package includes a large collection of tools and utilities, including an interactive three-dimensional geometry editor, raytracing and generic framebuffer libraries, network-distributed image-processing and signal-processing capabilities, and an embedded scripting language. As part of this effort, a multivolume tutorial series is being developed to assist users in the many features of the BRL-CAD package. Converting Geometry Between BRL-CAD and Other Formats, which is the fourth volume in the series, discusses pertinent characteristics of the BRL-CAD file format and provides specific instruction on converting tofrom various other modeling file formats. Also discussed are the steps involved in creating a new BRL-CAD converter and postconversion issues.
