After creating a surface using the Sweep2 command. I wanted to cut it in half using the Wirecut tool.
The wircut didn’t actually work for this, so as a backup option I tried using the Split command instead, and that worked just fine.
To finish off the models shape, I want to use the setpt command to align all the outermost points along the same y plane coordinate. and in preparation for the setpt command, I went to turn on the points visibility. . . and was surprised to see that the points were still in place for the half of the surface which I had removed via the split tool.
At this point I’m not sure what the best path to take is…
Should I be looking to run a command which redraws (or regenerates) the visible half of the surface.
Or is there something I should have been doing to cleanup the model after having done the surface split.
While my main question has to do with the points that are left over from using the surface split command, why they’re still there, and how to get rid of them. I’m also interested in any and all criticism about the steps I’ve taken thus far.
If there was a better approach to have taken concerning the initial modeling steps, then I’m happy to hear about what that might be.
Also, as a secondary question, What’s the most efficient method for selecting all of the points along either to top, or bottom curves of this surface shape. Clicking them individually takes a while, and using the rectangular selection box can only get a few at a time.
