Select similar edges on my object

Recommended Posts


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?

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.
