I'm trying to use the parting line feature to make a mold. It says I need to select edges that form a closed chain. I select and edge and choose select loop. How is it not a closed chain if I did select loop?
I found that you can't select that way as it only recognises the first line you click on. Either select the first line & then click on the little button that pops up for "Propogate" or you can press the "Y" key to add to the loop or there are some tools next to the parting line window.
y doesn't do anything and I don't see anything that says propogate.
First select your face for direction of pull, then click the Draft analysis button, then you can select the first edge for the parting line, then you get the pop up, Y key will work & tools appear down the side of selection box.
From what I see in your picture, where you have selected the loop needs to be a face, plane or edge to set the pull direction. Then hit the draft analysis button. Then you can select the loop for your parting line. I know, kinda picky on doing it with the proper steps.
I had to select draft analysis. To make it work like that.
