Delete the lid of a cylinder


#1

Hi.

I am trying to delete the lid of an already meshed cylinder. Is there any shortcut or alternative to manually delete all the inner points of this “lid”?

Thanks in advance.

In the Front or Right views (assuming the cylinder is vertical) call ExtractMeshFaces and window select the top (lid) edge-on and Enter, then hit the Delete button.

HTH, --Mitch

Hi, Helvetosaur.

I have tried this, but it deletes part of the faces of the side of the cylinder. I need to find some way to “select” the vertices of the inner of the lid, so I can delete them without affecting the rest of the cylinder. I enclose a capture to clarify my goal.

Thanks for your time :smiley:

Turn off Control points. Use ExtractMeshFaces… Window select from the Front…
