is there any way to get geometry out of a mesh containing no faces like this example with just a modifer? Maybe there is an addon out there?
That would make my life soo much easier because I’m animating my faceless mesh via python and want to render it out as geometry.
I’m not sure to understand your problem but I believe you need the solidify wireframe addon
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts in mesh scripts (mesh external)
should be easy to do in scripting
just make it as wireframe
or just remove all faces
Thanks Damien, that is exactly the technique I was searching for. Too bad it’s not a modifier that updates in realtime. Maybe I can work around this - if you find exactly such a script as modifier that works also with 2.63 please note me
