Learn how to use the Selection Filters for meshes.
- [Instructor] Now that we're working with mesh BREP bodies,…it's important to know that we have…explicit selection filters available to us…for choosing that geometry.…If we go down to the selection filter tool bar,…if you don't have it on your screen,…right-click up on the menu and turn on selection filter.…You'll see down at the end, we have these…three new options available, filter mesh facets,…mesh facet edges, or facet vertices.…So by selecting on vertices for example,…it's only going to let me select those vertices…of all of the mesh points on this particular part.…
If I switch over to the edges,…I can now select all the edges of these various facets.…And notice it's clicking through to each and every one.…If I turn that off, I can now select the facets themselves.…So if I want to select individual…or multiple facets, I can do that.…I can hold down Control, and just start clicking…and select multiple facets if I want.…So this makes it a lot easier…when we're trying to grab specific components.…
