Rotational Extrusion Filter in ParaView

The Rotational Extrusion filter uses the VTK filter vtkRotationalExtrusionFilter. The filter generates a swept surface from 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->Rotational Extrusion from the main menu.
  3. The Resolution box allows the user to increase the resolution of the swept surface.
  4. The Capping check box toggles on/off the capping of the end of the swept surface.
  5. The Angle box sets the angle of rotation.
  6. The Translation box sets the amount of translation along the Z-axis.
  7. The Delta Radius box changes the radius during the sweep process.
  8. The Apply button must be pressed before the Outline will be generated.
