What method to limit deletion to mesh face nearest me ?
« on: August 14, 2022, 12:29:53 AM »
a square section W shape tube.
photos set1 lying on its side for its underside , side and topside, set 2 standing upright for its 2 sides and top.
set 1 will provide the underside for set 2.

merge chunks, set 1 sees an edge with shadow and remains of newspaper, I delete the mesh BUT it is not limited to the side nearest me, however much I try to move it around my selection is seen as also being on the far face.

see attached. when I moved the object I saw the far wall had been pinked up as well !

How do we select polys on the object face 'nearest me' ?

Basic need but I fear it doesnt exist in which case in any stage of the operation, its impossible to remove the meshes that are not required and may mess up the merge chunks.

please tell me we have a way to delete on face nearest us as we will all come across this problem.

Is there a better program that can do all this bringing chinks together and editing parts away that are not needed  ? The scale tool is atrocious, 2D rotate of a chunk , no tool does that, taken ages to keep my ortho correct chunks as they were .

Is there a better prog for bringing chunks together ?
