Hi. I am attempting to machine a mold from this closed polysurface. I wanted to booleanunion this object from a block but cant figure how to make that work. What I ended up doing was deleting the facets attaching the top shell to the bottom shell and working from there.
Hello- you can try this plug-in - if you set a high angle tolerance - maybe 45- 60 degrees or so, and pick a face on the front or back as a starting face, it should find all the faces on that side.

You’ll need to unblock the rhp in Windows and then drag and drop it onto Rhino. I think this one is compiled for V7 +, not sure if it will run in V6. The command is ExtractTangentFaces.
Hey! Big fan of your work! Thanks for the speedy reply. I am using R7:
