I noticed strange behavior of Cell Centers Filter. It sometimes outputs unpredictable non-reproducible random results. I recorded this on video
That is definitely weird. Perhaps this is a race condition in the cell centers filter.
What kind of data is this? Is this a structured grid or an unstructured grid (or something else)?
This is a common 2D finite element mesh exported from Z_Soil geotechnical program. It consists of 100% quad elements
If you click on the
Information tab, what does ParaView say the
Type of the data is (in the
Yes, Unstructured Grid
@Andrei, I think I found the problem. I believe you revealed a bug in VTK. I won’t go into details, but I’ve reported the bug here: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/issues/19921
As a workaround, you can add the
Clean to Grid filter to your data before you run
Cell Centers. When you run
Cell Centers on the output of
Clean to Grid, you no longer get the errors you are seeing.
Many thanks! The Clean to Grid filter with default settings solves the problem
