paraview.simple.Tube

paraview.simple.Tube(*input, **params)
The Tube filter
creates tubes around the lines in the input polygonal dataset. The output is also polygonal.

Data Descriptors

Capping
If this property is set to 1, endcaps will be drawn on the tube. Otherwise the ends of the tube will be open.
DefaultNormal
The value of this property specifies the normal to use when the UseDefaultNormal property is set to 1 or the input contains no vector array (SelectInputVectors property).
Input
This property specifies the input to the Tube filter.
NumberofSides
The value of this property indicates the number of faces around the circumference of the tube.
Radius
The value of this property sets the radius of the tube. If the radius is varying (VaryRadius property), then this value is the minimum radius.
RadiusFactor
If varying the radius (VaryRadius property), the property sets the maximum tube radius in terms of a multiple of the minimum radius. If not varying the radius, this value has no effect.
Scalars
This property indicates the name of the scalar array on which to operate. The indicated array may be used for scaling the tubes. (See the VaryRadius property.)
UseDefaultNormal
If this property is set to 0, and the input contains no vector array, then default ribbon normals will be generated (DefaultNormal property); if a vector array has been set (SelectInputVectors property), the ribbon normals will be set from the specified array. If this property is set to 1, the default normal (DefaultNormal property) will be used, regardless of whether the SelectInputVectors property has been set.
VaryRadius
The property determines whether/how to vary the radius of the tube. If varying by scalar (1), the tube radius is based on the point-based scalar values in the dataset. If it is varied by vector, the vector magnitude is used in varying the radius.
Vectors
This property indicates the name of the vector array on which to operate. The indicated array may be used for scaling and/or orienting the tubes. (See the VaryRadius property.)

Methods

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

Methods inherited from SourceProxy

FileNameChanged(self)
Called when the filename of a source proxy is changed.
GetCellDataInformation(self)
Returns the associated cell data information.
GetDataInformation(self, idx=None)
This method returns a DataInformation wrapper around a vtkPVDataInformation
GetFieldDataInformation(self)
Returns the associated cell data information.
GetPointDataInformation(self)
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.
UpdatePipelineInformation(self)
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.
ListProperties(self)
Returns a list of all property names on this proxy.
SetPropertyWithName(self, pname, arg)
Generic method for setting the value of a property.
__del__(self)
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
__hash__(self)
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.
__iter__(self)
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)
