Selecting specific brep faces

Hello,
I have a number of breps made from extruding surfaces. Now I would like to select only the lateral / side-surfaces, without the upper and lower surfaces. How can I achieve this? Or is there another possibility, for example to extrude only the curves instead of the surface?

Thanks, but the breps on the side should also be like the breps at the top (the blue area in the photo).


There I also need the lateral Faces. How does that work?

It’s your art project, make it so. Perhaps I was too aggressive rounding off the DProd (Dot Product) output?


The faces from the breps in the orange area should be like the breps in the blue area. There you deleted the large bottom and cover faces.

Sorry, I don’t understand your images and objectives. This is a variation of the first try:

On the sides the red faces should be deleted.


The Breps should look like this everywhere.

So… what are the criteria for culling additional faces? Maybe this?

Sorry, I’m not interested in pursuing this further. Good luck.
