In V4 it was typical for me to perform Boolean operations by typing selcolor mid command to select the second set.
In V5 it is not possible because in will take into account the surface color from the first set.
I am not able to select anything by typing selcolor during a boolean command in v4. Can you explain exactly how you are doing this? Which boolean command are you calling, when do you type selcolor, and how do you choose the color once you type that?
I do not have V4.0 installed anymore, I go from recollection.
I am talking about Boolean difference where the 1st set is color A and 2nd set is color B. When prompted to select the second set I type selcolor and select one of the color B objects, then all the B colored objects get selected and proceed with the boolean.
In V5, selcolor works, but since the 1st set is pre-selected the command will select both A and B colors.
Hi Yianni - I also do not see that this is different in V5 compared to V4… But, being able to use SelColor anytime Rhino is asking for a selection seems a reasonable enough expectation. I’ll see what can be done to tune that up- selection can get complicated so I do not know what is practical but I’ll put it on the pile.
