Table to Structured Grid, whole extent issue

Hi,

I am trying to read in the attached data and plot it out using the Table to Structured Grid command. From the web, it seems as though the extents should be X_points-1, Y_points-1, Z_points-1 (or 9999, 9999, 9999 since there are 10,000 points in each direction). However, when I do that, I keep getting the error that follows this message.

Can someone explain to me what I am doing wrong? Thank you,

Alan

Welcome to ParaView, Alan!

You have 10,000 rows in your table, so X_point * Y_points * Z_points must equal 10,000. However, you have your whole extent set so that the output will be a structured grid with 10,000 x 10,000 x 10,000 elements, which is obviously far more!

Does your data really form a structured grid? Or is it a set of disorganized points? If it is the latter, you can use the Table to Points filter instead.

Hello. Cory, How to create cubes instead of point objects, as in the picture?

This is unrelated to the original topic, but you can use Glyph filter with “Glyph Type” set to “Box”.

Thank you
