Best way to delete all below z=0?

Hi, I’m very new to this and I am trying to use blender to create a model for 3d printing. My model looks generally fine but has a few rough edges below the plane z=0 which I would like to remove. I tried creating a cube where the top was z=0 and then applying the boolean difference modifier. It works mostly but creates a few unwanted artefacts. Am I going about this completely the wrong way ? Any advice would be very welcomed. Thank you.

This may work in your situation, using the transform panel in the 3d view properties shelf (N-key), in edit mode set the Z median to zero after selecting the vertices you want to move up.

That looks perfect, I will try it tonight. Thank you very much. :smiley:

Also, if vertices are not on the same plane (all have equal Z value/location) flatten those by scaling to 0 on Z axis.

The interesting question is how to select all vertices with Z<0? Box select may not be precise enough if you have many very close to the axis. Python?

import bpy

bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode = 'OBJECT') 
obj = bpy.context.active_object
max = 0

for v in
    if[2] < max : = True
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode = 'EDIT')
