CLF Select Outer Edges

This plugin will select the outer edges of a selection of edges.  Select all desired faces and edgesm then run this plugin.  It will leave only outer edges selected.

Access it via Plugins > Chris Fullmer Tools > Select Outer Edges.  Have edges selected before activating the plugin.


This plugin is really good in selecting the edges. I have taken the college paper help to know more about this plugin features. It is very use to use.

This is a good plugin, but you can also use ThomThoms Selection Toys that has the same function. You do the same with Selection Toys by left clicking your selected group/component, and then choosing "Select Only" followed by "Border Edges".

Thanks !
( I right clic acces could be realys great ! )

I'm having a bit of trouble with it. It installed fine but when I select a load of edges and run it leaves nothing selected, so I'm assuming I have done something wrong.

Also just want to say. its an awesome idea! I can see that this tool would save so much time. I really want to get it up and running!

This plugin does almost what I need: once I've selected internal edges, I need to them to fill up the holes they define. How do I do this?

I just installed "Select Outer Edges" and instead of installing in my existing "Chris Fullmer Tools" plugin menu, it created a second "Chris Fullmer Tools" plugin menu. How can I get all your plugins to install (or how do I move them) into one "Chris Fullmer Tools" plugin menu?
