   'shpe' <name|!> ['pln' <P1> <P2> <P3>] |['cyl'|con'|sph']
This keyword is used to create a shape which can be used to define the interiour of surfaces or to be used as a target for projections (see proj) oe to split entities (see split). A plane shape is defined with the parameter ``pln'' followed by the names of three points:

shpe H001 pln P1 P2 P3

Other types of shapes are planned but not implemented so far (cyl, con, sph). If automatic name generation is desired, then use ''!'' instead of a name. See also ``qshp'' for the mouse controlled definition of shapes.
