VTK is huge and even the 646 pages VTK Book and the VTK User's Guide are not enough to cover everything in details. That is the reason why we strongly need any examples, pratical materials, classes or courses. Please, do not hesitate to send Email me any links to such rare things, as they might be of great help. You, student too :)

Tcl Examples and Tests By Classes (VTK 4.x tree, VTK 3.x tree) - Links to source tree examples sorted by classes

Example Code - Short example C++ and Tcl code.

Answers to the exercises in the book

(M. Stoufer)
"This online resource has been designed to service both beginner and expert alike for referencing exercise solutions found at the end of each chapter of The Visualization Toolkit 2nd ed."

More viz and medical example at B. Lorensen home page

IVIS-3D (also mentioned in Applications)

(C. Klesper , FU-Berlin)
"If you like to know how to combine VTK and XFORMS, here is a very simple and rough example. Please let me know if there are better ways to do that." (example code available)

Courses, Classes, Presentations


(J. Kraak, Univ. of Groningen)
"Visualization examples for the The VISUALIZATION TOOLKIT (VTK), used in a VTK workshop given at the University of Groningen (RuG)." REALLY worth a look, lot's of examples.

CS563 : Advanced Topics in Computer Graphics Home Page

(M. Ward, Worcester Polytechnic Institute)
VTK Presentation -with lots of code (R. Resnick), Animating Water -no code but ask ? (Richard Resnick), Finite Element Method Application in VTK -some code (Y. Sun)

Advanced Computer Graphics and Data Visualization - Term Projects

(T. D. Citriniti, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY)
" This is a collection of Term Project completed by the students in "Advanced Computer Graphics and Data Visualization" 35-6961 for the Fall 1995 semester." And these of Spring 97. Very interesting projects, but NO code (should ask for it ?).

Jumping Jack Icon/Glyph - Scientific Visualization Project

(M. Srdanovic)
"The project is to combine 6 MRI images using some form of glyph. I decided to use a glyph that resembles a person doing "jumping jacks". Each limb of the icon will be oriented based on the intensity of pixels from each of the 6 images.". Part of the Scientific Visualization (91.541) course (Dr. G.G. Grinstein) at UMass Lowell Computer Science Department.

CS 5630 - Scientific Visualization

(C. Johnson , University of Utah)
formerly known as CS 523 : various solutions (+ code) : Class assignments - see 1 to 4 (T. Robbins), and also Y.-K. Yang assignments.

Introduction to Visualization with VTK

(T. L. Disz, Univ. of Chicago)
"Lecture 7, CS 341, Univ. of Chicago, Fall Quarter 1998." Powerpoint presentation, no code, nice illustrations.

Scientific Visualization and Virtual RealityNew

(J. Kaandorp, R. Belleman & Z. Zhao, Univ. of Amsterdam)
Note : "If you plan to use any of the material provided by our invited speakers for your own course, please contact me so that I can check for an OK with the authors.".


VTK is easier to learn using a scripting language, but you might not be familiar with any of them. These links provide ressources to Tcl-only examples and tutorials.

Tcl for Web Nerds

(H. Abelson, P. Greenspun, L. Sandon)
"...We hope that a professional programmer or MIT student can breeze through it in one evening. By the end of the evening, that person should have learned Tcl, learned a little something about the Web, and not have been bored."
