So just as the title says I want to know what the data means. By this I mean the table that appears when you go to Filters > Integrate Variables.

Could someone explain to me what these mean and the units.

The “Drag” variable in the photo is the “Calculator” filter and “Normals_Y” as the scalar value.

please share an image of your pipeline browser

Sorry, but I don’t know what a pipeline browser is. So could you tell me what that is, and how to know mine.

You may want to read this document first, this will help you get started:

http://www.paraview.org/files/v5.1/ParaViewGettingStarted-5.1.0.pdf

Here is the final result for me. I wasn’t able to properly follow step 8 because there was no option for “Vector” in Scale Mode, or an option called “Vectors”.

Ok, what is your question then ?

Share what you are doing and what is not working more clearly.

To get that point what I did is put my model (stl) into paraview. Then I Extracted Surface from the Filters menu, also generated surface normals, and then added calculator for “Normals_Y”. After that I went to filters and chose Integrate Variables to show a table.

My question is

What do the different variables on the table mean?

So for example, the Column labeled “Normals”, I want to know what that means and what units its in.

PointID: ID of the point, unique for each point

Drag: You computed it in the Calculator filter

Normals: A unit vector orthogonal to the surface of the cells surrounding the point (Normal (geometry) - Wikipedia)

Points: 3D coordinates of the points

In ParaView, nothing has units, it’s always relative to your data or without intrinsic unit.

Thank you very much. That helped out a lot.
