Did you run vtkContourFilter on the output, with the threshold at
zero?  (see the examples linked off the help page) Otherwise, the
filter outputs a volume, and just rendering that will give you a solid

If you have, then it's perfectly possible that your data doesn't meet
the requirements for that filter (follow the reference on the class
help page). In that case, try http://www.sq3.org.uk/powercrust/
