Thank you so much. But I don’t understand at all. How is the Sort list (reverse) + List item able to select the surfaces I want?

It’s just selecting the 2 largest faces from the brep:

How can i select 2 flat face ?

In this case, you could use the Y-position of the face centers to isolate these 2 faces: (2.8 MB)

Edit: You could also compare the normal directions of the faces to the unit-Y vector: (2.8 MB)

I got it Kevin Thank you so muck

Last question please
How can i select 3 flat faces ?

You could try building it by yourself, @kev.r already showed you all the tools you need.
In a first step I would search for a common property they share to be able to isolate your case it’s the three uppermost faces.
Just wanting to push you a little bit to practice the thinking of how to create an algorithm.

Tamam artist Bariş. You are right.

Do you have a detailed training content recommendation?

I would pick some structured content(like the primer) for the basics and also choose a tutorial to create some stuff that seems interesting to me.
Also reading the forum and trying to understand other people’s problems/definitions helps a lot I think.
