paraview.simple.Reflect(*input, **params)

The Reflect filter reflects the input dataset across the specified plane. This filter operates on any type of data set and produces an unstructured grid output.

Data Descriptors


If the value of the Plane property is X, Y, or Z, then the value of this property specifies the center of the reflection plane.


If this property is set to 1, the output will contain the union of the input dataset and its reflection. Otherwise the output will contain only the reflection of the input data.


If off, only Vectors, Normals and Tensors will be flipped. If on, all 3-component data arrays ( considered as 3D vectors), 6-component data arrays (considered as symmetric tensors), 9-component data arrays (considered as tensors ) of signed type will be flipped. All other arrays won’t be flipped and will only be copied.


This property specifies the input to the Reflect filter.


The value of this property determines which plane to reflect across. If the value is X, Y, or Z, the value of the Center property determines where the plane is placed along the specified axis. The other six options (X Min, X Max, etc.) place the reflection plane at the specified face of the bounding box of the input dataset.

Data Descriptors inherited from Proxy


dictionary for instance variables (if defined)


list of weak references to the object (if defined)


Initialize = aInitialize(self, connection=None, update=True)

Methods inherited from SourceProxy


Called when the filename of a source proxy is changed.


Returns the associated cell data information.

GetDataInformation(self, idx=None)

This method returns a DataInformation wrapper around a vtkPVDataInformation


Returns the associated cell data information.


Returns the associated point data information.

UpdatePipeline(self, time=None)

This method updates the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated data information. Make sure to update a source to validate the output meta-data.


This method updates the meta-data of the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated information properties

__getitem__(self, idx)

Given a slice, int or string, returns the corresponding output port

Methods inherited from Proxy

GetProperty(self, name)

Given a property name, returns the property object.

GetPropertyValue(self, name)

Returns a scalar for properties with 1 elements, the property itself for vectors.

InitializeFromProxy(self, aProxy, update=True)

Constructor. Assigns proxy to self.SMProxy, updates the server object as well as register the proxy in _pyproxies dictionary.


Returns a list of all property names on this proxy.

SetPropertyWithName(self, pname, arg)

Generic method for setting the value of a property.


Destructor. Cleans up all observers as well as remove the proxy from the _pyproxies dictionary

__eq__(self, other)

Returns true if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__getattr__(self, name)

With the exception of a few overloaded methods, returns the SMProxy method


Return hash(self).

__init__(self, **args)

Default constructor. It can be used to initialize properties by passing keyword arguments where the key is the name of the property. In addition registrationGroup and registrationName (optional) can be specified (as keyword arguments) to automatically register the proxy with the proxy manager.


Creates an iterator for the properties.

__ne__(self, other)

Returns false if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__setattr__(self, name, value)

Implement setattr(self, name, value).

add_attribute(self, name, value)
