Duplicate edge + _SelChain = Annoying bug


#1

Well, for an example - I have some surface, or a polysurface, and I want to duplicate edge… If I use _SelChain command to select edges - in a result I have duplicated edges… twice… all of them, except the one I pick first… and if this contour is something complex, with a lot of elements - it is very annoying job - to find that duplicated lines and to delete them…

Is it possible to fix??

Thank’s in advance

Can you post an example file?

Can You tell me - how can I post a file in here? :slight_smile:

Just drag and drop it into the message window.  It needs to be less than 2 Mb.

try to run SelChain command, to select all outer contour, and then - to
run a "duplicate edge " command… - in my case - all edges are twice
duplicated, except that one - I picked up running SelChain command

Yeah, I see that too… Depending on which edge you pick, sometimes not all the others are duplicated… SelDup selects them.

Workarounds:

  1. In this case DupBorder or DupFaceBorder, or,
  2. Call DupEdge first, then SelChain (with Position) and then pick one edge…

This one is just an simple example, usually I need to make this contour copy from polysurfaces, and running “Duplicate Border” command - will also make a lot of unnecessary geometries - exploding them, deleting unwanted, joining… a lot of extra operations… But Running DuoEdge first, then SelChain - do not allow to choose a Chain_Continuity selecting option ( position, tangency, curvature )…


#8

It does here… DupEdge, type or hit the SelChain button, you should have all the options in the command line… No?

I don’t have nothing, except DupEdge option - OutputLayer…

To me it looks like SelChain is not runnig at all if DupEdge is active running command

Yes. I think you are right.


#11

[Really?] 1 What am I doing wrong, then?

I don’t know. I can’t figure out how you made this work at all. I have the same results as @Dimetro


#13

The bug is you’re using the SelChain toolbar button. That appears to have a bad macro, it has a ’ in front. Doesn’t work inside SelDup. Without it it does. I typed all the commands, that’s why it works on my end. It also works if you call everything from the menus.

Yes. I just figured this out, too. If you just type Chain instead of SelChain after SelDup, it also works fine.
