Triangle Strip Filter in ParaView

The Triangle Strips Filter (which utilizes vtkStripper) uses a greedy algorithm to convert triangles into triangle strips.

  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->Triangle Strips from the main menu.
  3. The Max Length slider dictates the maximum number of triangles allowed in a triangle strip.
  4. The Apply button must be pressed before the request will be processed.

The Triangle Strip filter only works with Triangular data. Attempting to Triangle Strip volumetric (3d) cells or anything other than triangles will simply do nothing. If your data is not fully triangulated prior to using this filter, then the Extract Surface and Triangulate filters can convert your data into triangles.
