Isosurface Generation using VTK




VTK Basics



3.3.1. vtkPolyDataMapper


The explanation of vtkPolyDataMapper is simply that the class receives an object of type vtkPolyData and converts it to graphics primitives for a specific graphics library.  The primary reason to use this class is to get the latest output from the pipeline and set it as the input to this class.  The only other important function used for this tutorial is to set the scalar visibility flag off.  This prevents the scalar values of the data from affecting the color of the isosurface.  For more information about the abilities of vtkPolyDataMapper, consult the documentation of VTK.
