rx          scalar  {1}               Ellipsoid x-radius
ry          scalar  {2}               Ellipsoid y-radius
rz          scalar  {3}               Ellipsoid z-radius
ax          scalar/array {[1,0,0]}    Axis direction (1/2/3 = x/y/z-axis)
                                      alt. axis direction vector (ex. [1,1,0])
n_s         scalar  {16}              Number of circumferential boundary segments
tag         string  {E1}              Geometry object tag/name
t           logical {false}           Triangulate boundary segments
