SliceLat

DESCRIPTION

This module takes a slice through a lattice and outputs the colored plane as geometry. This module is different from Slice in that it does not regularly sample the lattice. Instead it intersects the lattice cells with a plane and creates polygons. The polygons are colored at each vertex with the interpolated lattice value.

INPUTS

Port: Input
Type: Lattice
Constraints: 3-D
This is the input lattice to be sliced.

Port: Transform
Type: Lattice
Constraints: 2-D
Constraints: 1-vector
Constraints: float
This is the input transform for the slice plane.

Port: Colormap
Type: Lattice
Optional: This port is optional.
Constraints: 1-D
Constraints: 4-vector
Constraints: float

WIDGETS

OUTPUTS

Port: Slice
Type: Geometry
This is the output slice.

KNOWN PROBLEMS

This module tests every lattice cell for intersection with the slice plane. This can be slow for very large datasets.
