# Question:

What are the different filter options in Smoothen Voxel Grid?

# Applies to:

- Smoothen Voxel Grid

# Answer:

The different filter options are:

**MeanCurvature:**Moves the surface in a normal direction by an amount equal to the mean curvature**Laplacian:**Applies Laplacian flow, This applies a weighted average of the voxel and its neighbors.**Dilate:**Moves the surface outward by the amount specified.**Gaussian:**Applies a gaussian flow, a weighted average of the voxel and its neighbors where a Gaussian determines the weights.**Median/Mean:**Median/Mean flow. This is an averaging procedure where voxel values are replaced by the median/mean of a neighborhood.**Eikonal:**Re-distances the voxel grid so that the result is an SDF.
