This script selects faces, edges and vertices that match your selection.
Place the script in Maya's script folder. To run it use the python command: import SelectIdentical SelectIdentical.run()
Also, because Maya's hotkey editor only likes mel, to bind the script to a key you need to use: python("import SelectIdentical") python("SelectIdentical.run()")
If you get strange results when running the script, you probably need to change the the precicion setting. I made a small ui for setting this, so run: SelectIdentical.options()
If you want to permanently change the default value, edit the code where it says accuracy = 4 near the very top. You can also change warnMe to false if you don't like the confirm dialog for very large selections.
