Accesing meshes questions

Keeping in mind that NMesh module will die some day, Is actually possible to access vertex coordinates without the NMesh instances?

And now, my critical and definitive question: how can I copy a mesh into a new mesh, keeping not only vertices&faces, but also materials, UVs, etc. and, maybe, SubSurf info?


If you pull down the bottom part of the File menu bar (thin grey line) at the top of the Blender screen, you will find the main Setup options. Shift D duplication options are on the right of this. Highlight the things you wish to duplicate.

Hope this answers one of your questions, sorry I don’t know about the first one.
