Here's a python script that will prompt you for a height and select extrudes in your document that have that height.

It's in its simplest form, I just threw it together.


I've also attached a plug-in file that you can put in your user folder to add as a menu command in your workspace.


xtrds = []
def Add_Handle(obj):

dim = vs.DistDialog('Extrude Height', 0)
sameHeight = []
for xtrd in xtrds:
	height, width, depth = vs.Get3DInfo(xtrd)
	if depth == dim:
for obj in sameHeight:
