Dear all,

Some time ago, I made the above posting and got the response from 
Christophe however in an untagged mesh structure, I did not understand 
how I will use the reclassify method. The problem is that it is asking 
me to select some elements however I can not do any selections on the 
mesh. Can some point me to the right direction?

Best regards,
