Find tri's, quads etc in model
« on: January 26, 2017, 01:58:58 pm »

Hi guys,
I use sculptris as my main texture program. 
The thing is that it only accepts tri's and quads. And of course every once in a while my models have some 5 sided thingies.
Is it possible to write a script that highlights said geometry?

Cheers,
Don't.

There are a few scripts you could use.

Maybe you'll find something useful.

Attached is a simple script that will mark the faces, edges, and vertex points of any face that has more than four sides.
