I want to make quantitative comparisons between 2-D axisymmetric data and 3-D data of a similar (though perturbed) simulation. I will therefore need some way of revolving the 2-D data into a 3-D dataset. The Rotational Extrusion filter does not appear to do what I want, since it only works on internal surfaces, producing output like what I’ve linked below. How would I go about doing something like this, perhaps using a Programmable Filter?
Would it be much eaisy if you slice your 3D data and compare it with 2D data?
Easier, yes. However, I would then have to justify why I picked a particular slice over any other, and I would also not be able to make 3D visualizations of the results.
