ShrinkCube

VTKExamples/Java/GeometricObjects/ShrinkCube


Description

Generates a cube using vtkCubeSource, then a shrink filter is applied. vtkShrinkFilter object shrinks cells composing an arbitrary data set towards their centroid. The centroid of a cell is computed as the average position of the cell points. Shrinking results in disconnecting the cells from one another.
