Extract Surface Filter in ParaView

The Extract Surface filter uses the VTK filter vtkDataSetSurfaceFilter. The filter generates and displays 2-D bounding surface of the active data set.

  1. First the user selects the data they wish to operate on from the Selection Window. It will be highlighted when this occurs.
  2. The user can then select Filter->Alphabetical->Extract Surface from the main menu.
  3. The Piece invariant checkbox removes internal surfaces between processes.
  4. The Apply button must be pressed before the surface will be generated.
