loading two geoms
I am trying to build a geom by putting things together called slices. Each of these is a collection of geoms which I loaded, arranged and saved using the "save as commands" option of geomview. (All done with normalization off). I do not want to "save as geometry" since I may want to move these parts around later. I have gotten two files--slice1.off and slice2.off which I have put in /u/roseman at the Center. slice1.off consists of a "slice-thing1" and three little dodecahedra within the bbox of the "slice-thing1". slice2.off consists of a "slice-thing2" and three little dodecahedra within the bbox of the "slice-thing2". To get slice2.off, I took slice1.off, deleted "slice-thing1", loaded "slice-thing2" and then moved the three little dodecahedra into the new bbox. Then I saved it. The two bounding boxes meet in (only) a common face. Each of these, separately, looks just fine; I just want to see both at once. That is, I want to put all this together and get the two slice-things (they fit together seamlessly) and six little dodecahedra. (The result I am after can be seen by loading slice1.off and then slice2new.off) I thought I could get what I want by first loading slice1.off in geomview, then loading slice2.off. I get the slices fitting together all right, but the little dodecahedra are not. Two seem to have disappeared, a third is misplaced. (I've tried this on Iris and Next) 1) I don't understand exactly why I get the result I see when I load both of these files--but the reason it doesn't work has to do with the way I constructed the files. The problem is the fact that the dodecahedra in the separate files share names. In fact, if I go in and "hand edit the ddd names" I can get slice2new.off (also in /u/roseman and this works). "diff slice2.off slice2new.off" will show the changes I have done. 2) I don't see how to do what I want to do in geomview. (Actually, the thing that I'm after will be obtained by putting together 25-30 of these slices, by adding slice after slice, with the slices becoming more complex. And assuming this works out I will then will want to go and do some more.examples of this kind ). To get the final result that calls for a lot of ugly hand editing of a lot of geom files--hardly interactive graphics.
