Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Infill

I guess there is a mixed up of threads... Magweb answered about red lines here: http://meshmixer.com/forum/index.php?topic=2259.msg5640#msg5640

Better indeed... Slicing a mesh near vertices is a nightmare if you care for a nice triangulation. My own slicing program has a hard time there too ;)

Works rather well here (though selecting the threshold is a bit tricky) because we know where the problems are located, but not so well in the general case. And if you preserve boundaries, you lock some of the needles... Anyway it's a delicate problem, when you look closely some of the thin triangles near boundary are no so skinny either.

For the tiny or even zero area faces it sometimes seems that not the whole boundary is selected but it is and  welding works here also on your flle.
Indeed! I was disdurbed by the way it looked so I didn't even tried to weld.
Btw, is there a simple way to get rid of those needle shaped triangles?

For the second, third... welding you also can select the whole FaceGroups (for each now owns a single boundary) that's easier.
Clever! Another way that works (when turns are far away enough) is to select turn tips using a big volumetric brush.

Excellent! But I had a hard time welding turns together. It looks like after splitting the torus, some very thin triangles remain, preventing double click on boundary to select it completely. What did work was to double click and expand selection (expand + contract doesn't work either). .mix attached.

Too bad the stamp has so stringent connexity requirements - that would be much simpler!

Indeed, "medium complexity objects" is at least as vague as " ... lots..." !  ;)

Wish List / Re: SELECT/CreaseAngle maximum
« on: June 18, 2015, 03:40:31 AM »
...and I would really be happy if there was a way to extend selection to all triangles that meet crease angle maximum (making > key selection expansion obey to angle constraint would be a nice way to achieve this)

Select -> double click on hole edge. This select the whole hole edge. Then Edit -> erase and fill. If you want a flat fill, select either flat minimal or flat remeshed mode.

Thanks, Magweb, very useful! (and thanks RMS for creating this feature in MM ;)

Wish List / Re: ExpandSelection to similar color

About criteria based selection tools, I miss (maybe it exists but I wasn't able to find it?) an automatic tool to select area planar enough (select all connected facets whose angle is below some threshold). I know it is possible to filter selection based on angle but you still have to paint whole area.

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Erase and fill flat shows red...

This is generally caused by isolated unselected triangles in your selection. Try to expand selection (>) once or several times depending on your mesh density, then reduce it (<) the same number of times.
Note also that if you double click on boundary, you get a selection that should be OK.

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Mesh is too small

You can check and change the size (and units) of your model using Analysis -> Models/dimensions

An alternative to close ends of tube (after joining helix halves as described by Magweb):
- in select mode, double click on each facing boundaries to select them
- Pressing shift, unselect a small portion of each boundary. Both unselected areas must be more or less in front of each other.
- Use the bridge tool to fill most of the end, except for a small hole where boundary was not selected.
- Close the hole by clicking on the blue sphere in inspector tool.
- Repeat for the other end.
