# Keep only new faces from Blender Solidify modifier

I am using the Solidify modifier from Blender. I just want to have the new surface that the modifier gave me. I dont see an option that its possible.

Is there a way how to do this?

Thank you

Simon

• you can disable the Fill Rim option, but of course you'll still have the original surface Jul 31 '20 at 8:21

Via a script

Select the object with the solidify modifier (and only a solidify modifier) and run script. Creates a new object with only the faces created by the solidify modifier.

import bpy
import bmesh

context = bpy.context

dg = context.evaluated_depsgraph_get()

ob = context.object
bm = bmesh.new()
bm.from_object(ob, dg)
bmesh.ops.delete(
bm,
geom=bm.faces[0:len(ob.data.polygons)],
context='FACES'
)
me = bpy.data.meshes.new("Solidify")

bm.to_mesh(me)
ob2 = bpy.data.objects.new("Solidify", me)
