MarchingCasesA

VTKExamples/Cxx/VisualizationAlgorithms/MarchingCasesA


Description

Marching cubes cases for 3D isosurface generation. The 256 possible cases have been reduced to 15 cases using symmetry. Red vertices are greater than the selected isosurface value.

This example runs the example MarchingCases with the arguments 15 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14.
