Model the BRL-CAD symmetrically
completed by: Sharan Narayan
This is a follow-on task to http://www.google-melange.com/gci/task/view/google/gci2013/5570107921137664 that anyone may claim.
This task involves adjusting the 3D logo model so that it is perfectly symmetric. You will need to use either MGED or Archer to edit the .g file, learn/know the basics of modeling with BRL-CAD, and edit the model to make this change.

To do this task, you will likely use either the 'oed' command or the Matrix edit mode and/or learn how to appropriately rotate objects. This may only require a simple rotation or it may require something more extensive.
This task will be validated by running "rt -s1024", bringing that image into Photoshop or Gimp, duplicating the layer, flipping the duplicate horizontally, and then adjusting the layer compositing to "Exclusion" so that alignment can be seen. You can try that process yourself to know when you're done. Here's how that looks if they're not symmetric: http://brlcad.org/tmp/asymmetric.png
