Select by boundary curve using multiple objects

Hi there,

I am wondering if there’s any way to use multiple closed curves to select the objects within their bounds?
Currently, it seems that it’s only possible to use one closed curved at a time.


For example, in the image above, I split the green curve with all the blue circles. I want to select only the contents within the circle. When I do the SelBoundary command, I’m only able to select one circle at a time.
If the circles were grouped, it would be useful for me to be able to select that group, and all the small bits of green line were selected cause all circles acted as a boundary. Also, it could work if I right clicked the circle layer, and added those circles to the boundary collection.

Cheers,
Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

I don’t think this is possible in Rhino without a script.
You can try this one: SelBoundaryMany.rvb (848 Bytes)
