How to select all touching/near faces?


( Charles C.) #1

Hi guys,

In a complex model I explode one polysurface and modified it. Now how to easily select all faces of this polysurface to join it back ?

(sketchup user here… use to tripple click to select all faces of a solid object. Anything close to this in rhino ?)

Thanks :wink:

Hi Charles - you can simply window select all the bits and run Join. But in the future it may be useful to use ExtractSrf and not Explode.

If I have to edit a face or two on a polysurface, I will often make it an odd unique color and then explode it. I then make the edits I need and SelColor one of the original polysurf surfaces which selects them all and then I run join to put it all back like it was.
