select elements with coordinates or in a box

Postby HoWil » Thu Mar 16, 2017 7:41 am

Hello,
Is there a way or already a feature to list all elements like points, edges, faces, solids, compounds on a specific point or e.g. inside a virtual selection-box/sphere?

Dear forum-moderators,
Can you please move this post to "Python scripting and macros" I think it makes more sense there.

EDIT: Thx

Sorry for bringing this up again but is there really no such functionality in Fc?
I would need this for several projects for instance in FEM to automatically select boundaries to assign their settings /conditions. Another one is related to an idea to overcome the topological renaming problem.
