Hey all, we're planning to migrate servers around Monday, so there will be a bit of downtime :) I can be contacted at dion@thinkmoult.com for anything urgent.

Selecting Assemblies

To Select objects part of an Assembly I have been using the Assembly number in the Outliner to filter and select. Is there an easier way to select 1 object in the assembly and then somehow select all the other objects in the Assembly?

  • That is fantastic news!!!!! I thought I was just missing something or forgotten how to do it. Sunshine is on the horizon. Thanks again for the update, I will keep my eyes peeled for news.

  • Though you can do it now in two actions:

    • F3 - Select Aggregate (or "Select Aggregate" button in Object Information -> Aggregates)
    • Alt-D (or "Select Decomposition" / "Select Parts" in F3)

  • Oh... that sounds interesting. I have tried to follow the notes but not getting any joy.
    Do I select an object, then hit F3?

    Hmm... I am not doing something right.

  • It would make sense to add it to the right click context menu when a part of an aggregate is selected, what do you think ?

    Maybe you have other hotkey for operator search menu, default is F3.

    Makes sense.

  • Does my mouse need to be in a special location when I hit F3? This is what I get using F3. I have tried having my mouse in Outliner or the IFC panel but none seem to mirror your screen grab.

  • I will have another crack on the weekend to see if I can get this working.
