Selecting using 3D View
• Surface cells/points
• Cells/Points within a frustum
• Blocks in a composite dataset
Select Cells on surface
• Used to select any set of visible
cells on the surface of a dataset
• Representation should be
points / wireframe / surface /
surface with edges
• With 3D view active, use the
�Select Cells On’
tool button
(shortcut �S’) to enter selection
• Click and drag to select cells
Select Points on surface
• Same as selecting cells on
surface except use �Select
Points On’
tool button.
Selection Linking

views (whenever possible)
• Active selection is shown in all
view (whenever possible)
Select Cells Through
• Select all cells intersecting a
• Use �Select Cells Through’
• Selection Inspector has a check
button to show the selection
• Use �Select Points Through’
for selecting points
Select Blocks
• Select blocks in a composite dataset
Composite Datasets
• Composite datasets are
datasets comprising of other
• Group together assemblies:
• Adaptive mesh refinement:
Select Blocks
• Use �Select Block’ (shortcut �B’)
to select blocks in a composite
• Keep Ctrl pressed when
clicking to add to existing
selected blocks
Selecting using Spreadsheet View
• Can create Point/Cell index
based selections (depending on
what attribute is being shown)
• Click to select rows as one
would in any spreadsheet
• Can use modifiers such as Ctrl,
Shift while selecting
• Selection is shown in all views
Selecting using Selection Inspector
• Create new selections
• Convert selections
• id based to global id based
• frustum to id based
• Modify existing selection

• Plot data variable changes over
time for a set of cells or points
• Use �Plot Selection Over Time’
• Make selection and �Copy
Active Selection’
• Output can be shown on a XY
Plot Selection over Time
• Changes for each cell/point
selected can be plotted, one at
a time, by choosing the block
on the Display Tab

Selection identifies the cells/points in the output of a filter/source
