Is anyone else have trouble with the duplicate border command on a ploysurfaces? Seems to work on surfaces but not polysurfaces
Works for me.
Is the polysurface closed, like the surface of a solid? If so there are no border curves/lines to duplicate. Border curves/lines are naked edges.
You can check for naked edges with ShowEdges.
Compare the results of DupBorder with DupFaceBorder and DupEdge.
Sorry just re-read your post. I see now dupborder doesn’t work on closed polysurface.
Here is how I would have thought it worked.
DupEdge- Duplicates selected edges surface or selected edge within a polysurface
DupFaceBorder-Would duplicated all edges of selected surface or selected surface within a polysurface.
DupBorder- Would duplicated all edges of (naked or not) of a surface or polysurface.
Maybe all edges should be an option?
Even the help file doesn’t stipulate that it’s just the naked edges on polysurfaces.
you can just drag a window around the complete object with dupedge, same result,…
Yes I know but sometimes if I there is a bunch of stuff overlapping it’s just easier to pick the polysurface instead of trying to isolate a view were I don’t get edges I don’t want from other surfaces.
will be a combination of dupedge and intersectcrv then, and a headache, yep, lots of headaches,…
If you turn your isocurve display off, you might use
! _ExtractWireframe to duplicate all borders, joined or naked. Eg. using a button macro:
! _Select _Pause _-Properties _Object _ShowIsocurves _No _EnterEnd _ExtractWireframe
Yeah that will work. Thanks
I shall fix that. Thanks.
