Using Select Connected Faces

Use the Select Connected Faces pop-up toolbar to help select connected faces in models.

To use Select Connected Faces:

  1. Right-click a face and choose Select Connected Faces.

    A pop-up toolbar appears to help you select faces to move.

  2. Hover over the toolbar images to highlight the possible selections in the model. Select an image, for example, All co-planar.

    The following selection choices are available:

    • All co-planar
    • All inner loops
    • All outer and inner loops
    • All surrounding
    • All tangent
    • All co-planar and connected faces
    • All co-directional full cylindrical/conical
    • All concentric full cylindrical/conical

    The software selects all co-planar faces.

  3. Use commands, such as fillet, to manipulate the selected faces.
