Could you post any more information on how it works/what it does? Is it something similar to Thomthom's Selection Toys?

Thanks!

LOL! Brilliant! So simple and clever! Just brilliant!

I'll install it of course but I'm so used to being careful right now that if I use this I may become even dumber than what I already am...

Thanks,

JQL

It seems to be deselecting everything. Are there any selection settings that I need to addressed before using?

nice idea

it works perfectly for faces in the selection

but it doesn't work for components in the selection

for example:

iselect#components#before.png


When i clic on the eye button:

iselect#components#after.png


you can see that some components that were visible,have been excluded from the selection, and some others, which were not entirely visible, have been kept

Would it be possible to fix that?

Elibjr: Well thank you sir I appreciate your support to sketchUcation. ;)

JQL: Really like the humor you bring to your comments...cheers! :D

plesiosaur: Maybe you were trying to select groups & components? Thank you for your feedback I will try to solve it soon. :thumb:

cotty: Thank you it means a lot! :thumb:

tridem: Thanks! :mrgreen:

Pilou: Yes that is the basic idea...Every selected entity will cast a ray into the camera eye and if nothing is in the way the selection will be maintained, else it will get removed from selection.

samothrace41: Thank you and welcome to sketchUcation!

numerobis: You welcome thanks for the comment!

chris87: I am glad you found it useful...welcome to sketchUcation!

glro: Currently working on it! Thank you for feedback! :thumb:

Nice job. For those that don't wish to use the toolbar, could there also be another version in which the context menu would display an option to execute the script?

Finished fixing the component & group situation and will start on adding the context menu next. Another plus to adding context menu is that it will show up on keyboard shortcut list. ;)

Thanks for feedback! :thumb:

Seems like a really, really!! useful tool.
But auto-install with sketchUp plugin manager (I even tried it twice) doesn't install it ?
Am I missing something, or is something missing ;) ?

Have you verified that your plugin folder's permission have full rights?

Just in case try auto-installing it from Extension Warehouse to see if that works.

Thanks for this plugin. I think it'll be very useful.

Erik, I just auto-installed it with the Plugin Store and it worked just fine for me.

Windows keeps being a mystery to me. :roll:
Not so long ago Tig mentioned the fact that being logged in as administrator not necessary meant you had full rights on every directory. So in order to overcome this he suggested all the usual directory's (sketchup, plugins,..) should all have this full admininstrator rights attributed to them. I don't recall anymore according to which plugin this was mentioned. BUT I then made sure all rights where given, and in the end the plugin worked. Seems that, for what ever reason (microsoft?) this now isn't anymore the case (altough all the other plugins work), for the plugin folder!
So again I changed the rights and "hoera !!" it works.
And may I say, fantastic plugin !!! So often when moving things (even after checking in x-ray mode) you missed a face of a vertex in the background and therefor messed up your model whit out noticing it. And when you found out later there is so much correction to be done (or some times it is virtual impossible timewise).
So :thumb: :bounce: :thumb: for this great plugin. (not to mention some other great plugins you made) Thanks,
erikB

i have an object with inner and outer faces. i would have a plugin that select only outsidefaces.

look here

viewtopic.php?f=323&t=38493

scroll down to

viewtopic.php?f=323&t=38493#p340407

yes

it works better, thank you...

there seems to be still some problems

selection from top
iselect#components#1.png


this is what is selected from another point of view
iselect#components#2.png


after clicking on "iselect" button, some columns remain selected

as i understand the rule (a component which is not totally visible is excluded from the selection), this shouldn't happen, no?

i use Iselect 1.0.1 to select components, but sometimes i forget to clic on the plugin button after selecting to filter them

i wouldn't forget if the filtering was automatic after selection

so would it be possible modify the order of operations, and embed your plugin in a "filtered selection" tool:
> you click on the button corresponding to "filtered selection"
> you select
> and only then "iselect" is launched to filter the selection

i tried to add some lines of code to yours to do that, but after calling the native select tool, everything stops ...

Hi!

As you can see in the attachment, it also deselects some of the front, visible faces. The problem appears when softened edges come into play.

I also told this in Extension Warehouse.
