If you have an Apple Pencil, tap any geometry in your design. Of course, you can also select multiple geometries together.
- Tap once if you want to select a face, sketch, or edge.
- Tap twice if you want to select an entire body.
If you have a mouse or trackpad, click any geometry in your design. To select multiple geometries together, press the Shift key while you click the geometries. Or, you can press the Command key and A to select all items in your design space. To deselect all, press the Command key and . or simply the Escape key.
- Click once when you select a face, sketch, or edge.
- Double-click if you want to select an entire body.
You can also select multiple geometries at once in a selection box with the mouse, trackpad, or Apple Pencil. If you're using a mouse or trackpad, click any area in your design space and drag the pointer across the space. If you're using the Apple Pencil, long-tap the screen and drag the Apple Pencil across the space. Depending on the direction you drag the pointer, the selection type changes:
- Drag to the right to select geometries that are completely included in the selection box.
- Drag to the left to select crossing geometries—objects that aren't necessarily contained in the selection box, but cross the box's boundaries.
Once you make your selection, you have the option to filter the selection based on item type: "All Items," "Bodies Only," "Faces Only," or "Edges Only." If you're using the Apple Pencil, use your finger to tap the selection filters while holding down the selection box with the Apple Pencil. If you're using the mouse or trackpad, press the Tab key to cycle through the selection filters. Or, press B for "Bodies Only," F for "Faces Only," and E for "Edges Only."
Each selection you make is indicated with a blue color, and any measurement related to your selection appears at the bottom of the screen.
Once you select a sketch, closed sketch, face, body, or edge, you can modify it with different tools. Depending on what you select, a custom menu with suggested tools will appear so you can immediately adjust the selection.
To deselect the geometry, tap or click on the empty area of the grid.
The Shapr3D app will highlight anything you hover over—a face, sketch, edge, reference geometry, axis, etc.—in your design space.
