Hello everyone,

I want to apply boundary condition at all surface nodes (only top surface) of 3D elements selection in my model.

However, I have been struggling to select these nodes.

When I convert my selection to nodes, it gives all the nodes inside these elements selected.

Do you mind to let me know how can I get the surface nodes in 3D elements selection?

Thank you so much!

Best wishes,

One option would be to intersect the selection you have (all nodes) with nodes on slice 1 (e .g., by using the 'Select by expression' tool) - assuming that you have a layered model.

That works! thank you so much Peter! Jintao also mentioned that we can do this by "Select Complete Slice", however as my model is a sloping ground built with 3D layered approach, this method didn't work. I need to get the intersection of 2 selections. Thanks a lot Jintao and Peter!

Another time, If you only want the nodes on the outside border (surface) of an element selection you can use convert to "Border node selection".
