Hi Denis and thank you for replying,

Indeed I tried SetExtent and proper slices came out. However I can't find a
way to connect the slices so the result will be like cubes.

If there is a way you or anyone out there knows of in order to make this
happen I'll be delighted to here about it.

Also does anyone know how to properly use the blanking property of
vtkStructuredGrid in order to visualize more complex geometries like the one
in the snapshot above?
