GeoGem Posted December 13, 2019 Share Posted December 13, 2019 The simple example: using the bounding region option in the group sop, if the bound was to select a partial amount or even a single point/prim of an "island"/piece geo, is there a way to extend the group to cover the whole of the connectivity. another example: a wheel that has a rim, hubcap and lugnuts as part of one imported model, would like to tell my group node, or wrangle to select whatever is in the top 10% of the bbox, then extend the partial selection to just the tire piece/name/class. if the bound were to select the top 30%, it would be both the whole tire and rim, minus the lugnuts and hubcap being 40% from the outer diameter. The idea is to create a connected pieces group, procedurally, without addressing a name/class that could possibly change if the input were transformed or changed topology. H18 i feel i could accomplish this easily with the group expand by surface, but unfortunately im unable to use H18 for a while. Im fairly good at wrapping my head around vex scripting, no hesitation to trying to coding this if im not missing an easier technique. Thanks!
