This might be obvious, but I'll chime in anyway. You could glyph the data twice, one with the part of the glyph that should be white and one with the part of the glyph that should be black. Then, just color the two glyphed geometries white and black as needed. - Cory On Wed, Jan 4, 2017 at 2:15

I'm currently working on adding the ability to use custom glyphs with ParaView's glyph mapper. It will allow you to select a pipeline connection for the glyph type (rather than the static list of arrow, sphere, etc). Should be available in the next few weeks. Dave On Tue, Jan 3, 2017 at 4:41

Thanks David, I did try that first and was unable to select the "Glyph Type" and gave up. Luckily your post encouraged me to RTM where it states that vtkPolyData should be used for the glyph. A quick extract surface filter fixed that, so thanks very much for your help. Bob On 2 January 2017 at

Glyph with Custom source filter can do it. Note that it works in CPU/RAM instead of in a GPU shader so memory can be an issue for all the replicated geometry. To use it, manufacture a mesh that appears the way you want it and save it in a common mesh format. Load that into the pipeline and hide

[Paraview] Custom Glyph

2017-01-02 Thread Bob Flandard
Hi, Any links or advice on how to create a custom glyph? I'd like a sphere divided into 8 equal sized/shaped patches and colored alternate black and white, to represent the centroid of a point mass. I have lots of these, so a glyph would be best. Thanks, Bob
