Select All Faces


I would like to see a way to select off the faces on a geometry within a selection box or presets (select all interior faces or exterior faces for example) my models tend to have lots of fins and curves on the exterior or lots of volumes in the interior and having a way to select all of the faces on a specific part of the model would save a lot of time when setting up topological entity sets (which in turn save a lot of time when setting up contacts and boundary conditions.


I believe that making the software define inside or outside (enclosures might be a little more complicated), I am not certain of this. But an alternative would be to be able to drag a selection box and only select the faces that are seen on the screen (and inside the box), faces perpendicular to the view or behind another face would not be selected. Just a suggestion of maybe an easier fix.
