Re: Select inner faces as FEM boundary

Hello, I think the only option you have is to use clipping planes. Go to View->clipping Plane and than simply select the inner face. However, as the plane settings open in the tasks panel and all clipping planes vanish on close it cannot be used parallel to annother open task. so this only works if...

All I need...

Re: Embedding or Embossing a logo onto a surface

I'll give 0.17 a shot, but for reference here's a link to my dropbox location with the example file. This isn't the final but close.

Re: TabBar

Hi triplus, Thanks for this fresh, interesting and new interface. I tested it and have some suggestion: * An option to turn all toolbars (outside tabbar) for all workbenches at the same off.

Re: Perspective Viewport Properties
