Hi Francois,

The surface is made of triangles. I have tried passing my surface data
through a triangle filter and a normals filter. Still I get the same
inconsistent results.
However, if i use a surface (STL file)  which is created using VTK built in
shapes like vtkCylinderSource I get consistent output. I am facing problems
with my STL file which is created using a CAD software. I have ensured that
the surface is closed with no boundary edges.
