PointDataSubdivision

VTKExamples/Cxx/Visualization/PointDataSubdivision


Description

Introduction

This example demonstrates the use of the vtkLinearSubdivisionFilter and vtkButterflySubdivisionFilter .

In order to see the effects of these filters a triptych is created that demonstrates the effect of applying the filter.

The user can select from a list of sources to render, specify whether normals are displayed, what type of shading to use and the number of normals to glyph.

A representative set of sources to render are provided in the class called Sources. The user is encouraged to experiment with different sources to see the effect of the filters.

Adding more sources.

If you add more sources, you may need to provide one or all of these filters: - A Triangle filter - A Normal filter - An elevation filter. - A CleanPolyData filter. - For parametric sources, you may need to apply one of both of JoinUOff() or JoinVOff().

The representative sources provided in the class Sources should provide good templates.
