This example demonstrates how to create and display a quadratic surface.

QuadraticSurface.cxx

#include <vtkSmartPointer.h>
#include <vtkQuadric.h>
#include <vtkSampleFunction.h>
#include <vtkContourFilter.h>
#include <vtkActor.h>
#include <vtkProperty.h>
#include <vtkRenderWindow.h>
#include <vtkRenderer.h>
#include <vtkRenderWindowInteractor.h>
#include <vtkPolyDataMapper.h>

  // Create the quadric function definition
  vtkSmartPointer<vtkQuadric> quadric =

Download and Build QuadraticSurface

Click here to download QuadraticSurface. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball QuadraticSurface.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd QuadraticSurface/build 
  • If VTK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:
cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./QuadraticSurface

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
