Script: SelectByProximity (5$ tier)

Recommended Posts


recently, the question has come up on how to cut a mesh (with the Disconnect command), and subsequently how to select certain colocated points. Cutting a mesh (among other workflows) creates duplicates of points along the cut which are on top of each other so the normal selection can't "grab" a specific one.


The script PS_SelectPointByProximity allows you to point at a polygon to select one of its points (that is closest to the hit spot). This avoids the ambiguous selection issues that the standard selections create.


(Keyboard shortcut needs to be assigned, point mode recommended, but it runs with all tools - no change of tool necessary.)
