Build an example¶
At the bottom of each example page, there are instructions on how to build the example.
Build all of the examples¶
If you are getting excited about learning VTK and are tired of downloading individual examples, you can build them all.
- As a VTK Remote module
When you configure your VTK build, set Module_VTKExamples:BOOL=ON and rebuild VTK.
Download a zip containing the source.
Clone the VTK examples repository
git clone https://github.com/lorensen/VTKExamples.git cd VTKExamples cd build cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=YOUR_VTK_BIN_DIR -DBUILD_TESTING:BOOL=ON .. make
where YOUR_VTK_BIN_DIR is the location of your VTK build.
Update the examples repository¶
If you cloned the examples repository, you can get the latest updates:
cd VTKExamples git pull cd build cmake ../VTKExamples make
Run all of the examples¶
