A must-have tool for VTK! It was a long time that I wanted to perform boolean operations using VTK, and finally, here it is.
The authors also explain why using vtkClipPolyData and a vtkPolyData as ImplicitDataSet does not really produce the proper intersection. I met this problem few month ago, and have never understood why it didn't work.
Also tried Lloyd's class using GTS but with poor results...Hypothesis:
DataSets must be compounded of triangles only. Just use vtkTriangle before using the filter, just to be sure.
A second assumption is that there is no coplanar triangles in the datasets. This may happens but very very rarely.Evidence:
Great figures and also examples to test the class.Open Science:
Perfectly open since there is no licence conflict. Ready to be included into VTK.Reproducibility:
I've tried using my own datasets and get equivalent results. I had no problems with my data.Open source Contributions:
The next tool to implement. I will suggest it on the paraview'e user voice.Free comment :
