If you know where the vertices are, it should be fairly simple. Consider the very simplified example.

x = [0 10 10 0 0];

y = [0 0 10 10 0];

plot(x,y,'k'); hold on;

x = [0 2 2 4 4];

y = [6 6 8 8 10];

plot(x,y,'k:')

axis equal

xlim([-5 15])

ylim([-5 15])

Whether you explicitly define your vertices as literal vectors or whether you derive them from some CAD file shouldn't make much difference.
