Select Poly Surface by Thickness

How to select poly surfaces by their thickness? I have some poly surfaces thick 6 mm and some are 5 mm. 8 mm, and 10 mm.

Hi Mohammed - you’d need a script to do that if it is possible at all.

-Pascal

can you help me? from where to start please?

Hi Mohammed - please post a file with a few example objects.

I have added a file. There are some objects with 6 mm and 5 mm thickness

you can use
_thicknessAnalysis
to visually distinguish the parts - and manually select them.

Hello- here is a very quick test that willl work for these objects.

SelThickness.py (737 Bytes)

It is not likely to be very robust and may well give ‘false positives’ but may be good enough for now.

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"
