If VTK is installed:

cmake ..


If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..


Build the project:

make


and run it:

./DisplayQuadricSurfaces

Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
