View Full Version : Edge angle

10 October 2008, 09:26 PM

So I've been trying to use PolySelectConstraint command and haven't been able to successfully get it to work. I am trying to select edges with a certain edge range.

polySelectConstraint -m 3 -t 0x8000 -a on -ab 86 94;
PolySelectConstraint -dis;

This is what I have so far. Now the odd thing is that when I try and use the exact mel help example it won't even work. I can get it to work with selecting faces, like ngons. I just can't get it to work with edge angles. I have also been able to select soft and hard edges with the command. If I query the angles like this

polySelectConstraint -q -ab;

I always get 57 point something. The only thing I could find relevent to this doing a google search was a highend 3d post with a guy having the same problem, unfortunately no one gave him the answer. If anyone could assist me with selecting edges with an angle of a certain degree I would greatly appreciate it.
