Disconnect from Edges

Recommended Posts

Hello,

How can I disconnect primitive from my edges selection. In other words, how can I make my edges selection unshared ?

I've already try to use "unique" from fuse sop but as this sop need points selection, it's make more unshared edges that I want (cf. hip and screenshot).

Thank you.

Promote the grp to pts then Fuse unique on the "edgetodisconnect" grp. 

Hi Sepu, thank you but as I said in my first post I already do that but it make unique too much edges (cf. screenshot)

No problem, I'm probably not clear enough.

As you can see, all edges are blue = unshared/double (in particular the ones on the center bottom part), so if made an ployextrude inset on all, its treat each as faces as individual.

Do you see what I mean ?

Ok, I think I got it :

  1. First I have a group of edges that I want to disconnect
  2. Group promote : Convert this group from edge to point
  3. Fuse -> Unique : use this group of points to make them unique
  4. Connectivity : make an attribute by primitive connected pieces
  5. for each + Fuse : use this attribute to iterate an use Fuse to consolidate

That it ! not the simplest way but it works !

If anyone have a simple method, I'll be happy to know.

Thank you for your time Sepu !

could it be this simple ? I don't think it will ever work for a SINGLE edge...so I made a 2-edge selection below your single edge and that has been retained.

Hi Noobini ! Yes you're right about single edge.

I like your solution,  effectively it's way much simpler ! I've just enable cut boundary points in my case.

Thank you very much for your time !!
