Say you want to select a surface feature for an offset. The default selection is the face you pick on. I could select each face individually, but I want to ensure that the offset lives through any changes to the original surf - so that if the number of faces changes, the offset won't fail. How can I select the whole feature to offset it instead of just the individual faces?
Are there shortcuts in SWX to change the type of element that gets selected?
RMB>select other> pick the feature - is one (that I use)
I would imagine the "selection filter" could help...? but I have yet to learn how to use that tool. (any advice on this tool?)
What do you use that is fast and easy?
Oh, why am I whining, you ask? Because there are such a great many things in SWX that significantly increase my productivity compared to that other CAD package I used to use, but this one thing really tears down a lot of that increase. I am imagining that SolidWorks did not let that little thing escape, I just haven't found the answer yet. Hopefully my imagination is not overactive and you will show me what I am missing.
