Select similar edges on my object

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is there a way to do this:

I'm in edge mode, I make a loop selection of a series of edges, and then I ask cinema 4D to select all the same selections on my object?

 

Thanks

What are the same selections? What makes them identical?

    From this screenshot I can only guess, that you mean similarity topology-wise.
    I could imagine thousands of other similarity criteria:
    * Similar length of edges or entire loop

    * Similar orientation of loop

    * All edges in a similar region of space

    * All edges with a similar direction in space

    * All edges belonging to polys with the same material

    * For closed loops, all loops with a similar "surface" (area bounded by the edges)

    * ...

    * or a combination of all of the above

     

    I'm pretty sure, without you taking the time to describe the problem precisely, it will be hard to get help.

  • Thank you for your answer.
    Yes indeed, I was wondering if there was a solution to make this type of advanced selection, maybe a plugin?

    I need to select all these parts but only 1 edge loop, not 5, out since I added a bevel, cinema 4D prevents me from selecting only 1 loop and offers to select 5 loops ...

    Stephane, if I am correct, unfortunately there is no easy solution to this, you will have to select manually these edges!!

    Can you upload the scene?

    To be honest I still haven't fully understood, but I'd take a look, if there's a generic scripting solution.

  • I thought there was a solution ... Selected each rings is tedious ...

    I send you the story file to see if you have an idea?
