MassFlow drawbell format specification

A MassFlow ASCII-format drawbell file is with the following specifications:

Line 1 - These are the minimum required table headers. BellName, DDWidth, DDHeight, SideAngle, EndAngle. Other headers may be present but will be ignored by MassFlow.

Line 2 onwards - Actual values for each of the columns. Each line should have a unique Draw Point Name, and XYZ coordinates. The Draw Bell ID are usually numbered starting from 1. The Draw Bell Type is a string representing the shape, followed by % followed by a number. e.g. cone%1. Allowable strings are \(cone\), \(rect\) or \(slc\). All shapes require a name, a width and a height. Other entries depend on the specified shape. See Draw Bells for more information.
