Learn how to use the Paint Selection tool for grabbing many facets at once.
- [Instructor] When trying to select different parts…or different facets of a surface mesh body…or a solid mesh body inside of SolidWorks,…it's sometimes a good idea to use the paint select feature.…So how we get to this is you right-click on your mesh body,…go to selection tools, and go to paint select facets.…So you can see that I've got a little circle that shows up…and that's the area in which it's going to select…the facets when I hold down my mouse button.…So I'm going to hold down the left mouse button…and just start dragging it along…and you can see it selects all…of those facets as I go along.…
If I hit the green okay checkbox,…you can see that I've selected all of those facets…and then I can grab whatever feature I want,…delete them, do whatever I'm going to do…in that operation after selecting them.…If I want to deselect, I just hit escape.…Again, we right-click, selection tools, paint select faces,…and then just hold down your left mouse button…and drag along the areas…that you want to quote unquote paint and select.…
