how do you remove edges but keep faces

how do you remove edges but keep faces and vertices on a mesh?

(belac) #2

select the vertices at the end of the edge that you want to delelte. hit ‘X’ and select edges… be careful though cause if there is no longer an edge conecting a vertice then it will be deleted as well.

this isn’t the proper forum for this post, so try to post under the questions and answers page.

good luck.

This is no question forum, unless the question is finished(finished project).

Strictly speaking, you can’t

If you delete a FACE you keep edges and vertexes

If you delete an EDGE you keep vertexes BUT loose all faces containing
that edge

If you delete a vertex you lose all faces and edges containing that vertex.

If deleting a face/edge you remain with orphan edge/vertexes you lose them too.


P,S, I moved this in the Q&A forum

what possible use would an edge have anyway? It isn’t capable of being rendered, so it seems pointless…
