    Hi Pjotr,

    would it not work for you to save a reconstruction region as the basis for sselection?

    Of course, that would only work for simple geometry...

    But I have also come across similar problems and wished I could save a selection.

    So +1 from me.

    no, what you can see in the video, I sometimes need to make quite complex selections. A Reconstruction Region is way too coarse.

    Sorry, didn't watch it yet.

    Another thought, which might or might not work:

    The selection can be undone using ctrl-z, so if the history survives the filtering process, you could export one model, go back to the last selection, invert and then filter again.

    That does the trick! Great idea, thanks! I'll describe it in a next tutorial (too late for this one).

    Excellent !

    Just one of many features not properly described in the manual or tutorials.

    I was really thrilled when I discovered it by accident...   ;-)
