Hi all,
I am having problems using vtkcutter and I was hoping I could get some 
help.I have created a box using tcl commands...simply the cubesource and I 
have placed some particle that are ellipsoids.I wanted to cut the particles 
and be able to display them on a separate window.I was able to use vtkcutter 
and set the input to be the cube but that gives me an outline of the cutter 
when displayed in the rendered window and there appears to be no filling in 
between.I used vtkplane as my cut function. It also does nothing to the 
particles inside, i.e they appear uncut and I can't see a plane passing 
through them.The cutter is easy to mainupulate but it is useless in seeing 
the particles it passes through. I also tried inputing the particles I 
created but that does nothing.
  Can someone suggest an alternative?Is vtkcutter only good for datasets and 
not for sources?Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
