Is it possible to select the objects within a solid? I currently need to select the points within a specified distance from a surface. I can easily create a solid which encloses the points with the OffsetSrf command. Now I need to be able to select the points within the solid. I also want to be able to select the points within a specifice distance of a curve. I could create a solid which encloses the points with the Pipe command.

For the second request, you could use SelVolumePipe in V5.  For the first, scripting is the way to go, there are several possibilities, according to what you want: 


All the points within a certain distance from the volume including the ones inside

All the points within a certain distance from the volume not including the ones inside

All the points within a certain distance from a given surface (does not need to be closed)

There are also lots of scripted possibilities with points near curves without having to go through SelVolumePipe.

Let me know which of the above interest you and I can post a Python sccript or two...
