OBBDicer

vtk-examples/Cxx/Meshes/OBBDicer


Description

The vtkOBBDicer filter breaks up an input mesh into a number of pieces. The resulting mesh contains scalar point data that can be used to extract the individual pieces with a filter like vtkThresholdFilter. This examples displays the output of vtkOBBDicer with a different color for each piece.

The first argument is a filename for a vtkPolyData reader. If not specified, then a vtkSphereSource generates the vtkPolyData. The second argument is the number of pieces and is optional. The default is 4.

The example was run with these arguments:

   OBBDicer Armadill0 20

Download and Build OBBDicer

Click here to download OBBDicer and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball OBBDicer.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd OBBDicer/build

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./OBBDicer
