Distance from Surface

Is there any simple way to identify/select points that are greater than a specified distance from a surface?

Hello- use PointDeviation to identify, a script would be resquired to select - rings a distant bell, I may have something…I’ll check.


That always happens to me, it’s difficult, what I do is block or hide what I’m not using at the moment

You can try this script - select a surface or polysurface and enter a max distance, any selectable points further than that distance from the object will be selected…

if the surface is not to complex:

workaround without script:

build a helper volume:
_offsetSrf (solid=yes)
select everything inside this object
_selPt (select all remaining points)
