gid, csysid
$x$, $y$, $z$, $R_x$, $R_y$, $R_z$
##### Parameter definition
VariableDescription
gid Geometry identification number
csysid Local coordinate system ID
default: global coordinate system is used
$x$, $y$, $z$ Center coordinate
$R_x$, $R_y$, $R_z$ Length of semi-axes
##### Description

This command is used to define an ellipsoid geometry, with its center at ($x, y, z$) and with semi-axes lengths ($R_x, R_y, R_z$). A local coordinate system can be used to direct the ellipsoid in an arbitrary direction.

##### Example
###### Ellipsoid filled with soil particles

En ellipsoid geometry (defined in a local coordinate system) is filled with discrete soil particles.
