Select support points with a window or a lasso


#1

The ability to go to smaller touch points in Preform 2.19.0 is nice, especially in the threaded portions of nut & bolt type objects. However, when in edit mode all you can see is tiny points that lack contrast. Having a different color for the automatically generated points than the user added supports would help a lot. Also being able to select a group of points to change at one time by a window or lasso would save a lot of time, I can’t be the only one doing threads or other small detailed segments in a model that otherwise finds larger touch points essential, in some areas, to prevent print failures. These images

will illustrate my issue:


#2

Click and drag will select all the points in an area.


#3

That looks like overload on the supports on the bottom area. I’d do with a third of those if it was my print.


#4

If you had two failed prints with Rigid and lost an LT tray, you may not think so. Rigid is heavy!


#5

BTW All of the failures were in the supports, they either failed in shear or in the attachment to my model. I’m tired of wasting both time and resin so a little more resin seemed the logical choice.
