Rescue model with no face (accidentally deleted)

I wish to know if there is a way to recover deleted faces, when all there is in a model are verts and edges. This happened to me once and I haven’t found a way to recover from it.


Use ALT-F, then tris to quads.

You may need to do this in parts (for example, test this on the sphere: delete all faces. Then select the front half of all edges, alt-F, and select the other half. Alt-f again.

Plain F also works for the sphere when you select all non-manifold edges (selection menu).

If you have a point cloud only, use MeshLab

aah, thanks, I forgot about the F hotkey… new to Blender…
