Group edges

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys, maybe this is stupid, but how should I group these four edges highlighted in the image below( the red and green edges except top two and bottom two edges)

Hold down SHIFT + A and middle mouse click on each edge. Once you have all the edges selected, press TAB (while your mouse is still in the viewport) and add a Group. That's it.

Yeah, I did it manually, but I was trying to see if there is any procedural way of doing it

I've been searching now about this, and I couldn't find anything. I'm guessing there is a way with writing some code to detect in what direction the edge is facing, bud sadly I'm not there yet.

EDIT: 

I think somehow you must do a for each loop, where it will to check each edge for it's direction.

Yeah, thanks for you effort, I was trying different ways of grouping yesterday but it always end up grouping all the surrounding edges, it's kind hard to manipulate edges in houdini.

Actually not, maybe my description is a bit confusing but I want those four long side edge loops without the top and bottom two
