Parameter definition
VariableDescription
gid Geometry identification number
gid${}_1$, ..., gid${}_8$ Up to 8 sub-geometry ID's
Description

This command is used to combine up to eight sub-geometries into one composite geometry. A negative ID means that the region represented by the sub-geometry will be removed from the composite geometry.

Example
Composite geometry filled with soil

A composite geometry is defined by combining a GEOMETRY_PIPE with a GEOMETRY_BOX. The box is referenced with a negative ID and it cuts a hole in the cylinder defined by the pipe.
