VTK Examples Baseline PolyData TestExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData.png

This example uses vtkCutter to create contour lines. It processes these lines with vtkStripper to create continuous poly lines. After exiting the example with the "e" key, the lines are printed.

Download and Build ExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData

Click here to download ExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball ExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData/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:

./ExtractPolyLinesFromPolyData

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
