Crop Geometry (Vertex)

DREAM3D Review (Cropping/Cutting)

Description

This Filter crops a Vertex Geometry by the given bounding box. Unlike the cropping of an Image, it is unknown until run time how the Geometry will be changed by the cropping operation. Therefore, this Filter requires that a new Data Container be created to contain the cropped Vertex Geometry. This new Data Container will contain copies of any Feature or Ensemble Attribute Matrices from the original Data Container. Additionally, all Vertex data will be copied, with tuples removed for any Vertices outside the bounding box. The user must supply a name for the cropped Data Container, but all other copied objects (Attribute Matrices and Attribute Arrays) will retain the same names as the original source.

Note: Since it cannot be known before run time how many Vertices will be removed during cropping, the new Vertex Geometry and all associated Vertex data to be copied will be initialized to have size 0. Any Feature or Ensemble information will retain the same dimensions and size.
