I am measuring the cross sectional area as it changes along a part in the X-direction. How do I select faces created by cut feature? Or maybe, select all the faces normal to the front plane, with some x-coordinate?
Currently, I do the following, but it is unreliable (faces lose material data when they are cut) and computationally expensive (selects every face and checks material properties for each cut):
Select all faces
Color all the faces red
For loop (stepping in increments)
Cut the part
Select all the non-red faces 'The faces created by a cut feature do not have a color
Measure the area of all the selected faces
