I want to use `Mesh Quality`

filter to calculate the total surface area of a surface. Any help on how I may be able to do that?

If you set the quality metric to surface area for all the surface cell types present, you can then run the `Integrate Variables`

filter after `Mesh Quality`

and it will add field data to your dataset containing the sum (discretized integral) of surface area over all the cells.

Field data in `Integrate Variables`

filter section showed me the integrated area. Thanks!

It’s worth noting that recent versions of ParaView also have a `Cell Size`

filter that can also compute the surface of cells. Because it is less general than `Mesh Quality`

, you might find it easier to use. It also has a convenient feature to compute the `Sum`

, which allows you to also get the total surface area without having to run `Integrate Variables`

. (It shows up as a “global” field. Go to the `Information`

panel to see the total surface area.)

Yes I’m aware of that but on choosing the `Cell Size`

filter, Paraview is crashing. That is why I’m preferring to use `Mesh Quality`

filter.
