FlyingFrogSkinAndTissueC

VTKExamples/Cxx/Visualization/FlyingFrogSkinAndTissueC


Description

Frog no skin or skeleton.

This example is a modification of ViewFrogSkinAndTissue using vtkFlyingEdges3D for contouring. However there is an option to use vtkMarchingCubes instead.

Info

See Figure 12-9c in Chapter 12 of the VTK Textbook.
