I have an idea for a possibly a quite useful tool. Let's call it Compound Filter. The tool is to delete or leave pieces of compound basing on criteria, something like:
* if volume of a piece is more than/less than some value
* if a piece touches/doesn't touch a user-supplied stencil solid
* if a piece is completely inside of a user-supplied stencil solid
Here's a problem that I'm trying to solve, and thought it would have been great if there was such a tool:
I made a set of turbine vanes, and I have to cut off some of them because I need to fit spokes there. If I use the cut tool, I get a few debris hanging in free air, that should be deleted.
I know, I can just break the compound apart, delete the debris manually, and re-group the compound. But the operation is not parametric, so if I decide to adjust shape of vanes, or the number of them, I'll have to redo the manual debris cleanup.
Or, if there already is a tool to parametrically solve my problem - I would love to hear suggestions!
