Ever wanted to convert entities on all edges - not just the boundary? 

Ever wanted to convert entities on all edges - not just the boundary?

 

  

   

 

To also get the insides, turn on the edge selection filter.   

 

To do this, press F5 on the keyboard.  A toolbar will pop up.  Choose this option…

 

  

  

Go “normal-to” the sketch, drag select a box around the model.    

 

Converting entities now captures everything on the inside too!!

 

 

NICE!!
