Remove Flagged Vertices

Group (Subgroup)

DREAM3D Review (Geometry)


This Filter removes Vertices from the supplied Vertex Geometry that are flagged by a boolean mask array. Specifically, Vertices flagged as true are removed from the Geometry. A new reduced Vertex Geometry is created that contains all the remaining Vertices. It is unknown until run time how many Vertices will be removed from the Geometry. Therefore, this Filter requires that a new Data Container be created to contain the reduced Vertex Geometry. This new Data Container will contain copies of any Feature or Ensemble Attribute Matrices from the original Data Container. Additionally, all Vertex data will be copied, with tuples removed for any Vertices removed by the Filter. The user must supply a name for the reduced Data Container, but all other copied objects (Attribute Matrices and Attribute Arrays) will retain the same names as the original source.

Note: Since it cannot be known before run time how many Vertices will be removed, the new Vertex Geometry and all associated Vertex data to be copied will be initialized to have size 0. Any Feature or Ensemble information will retain the same dimensions and size.
