I have a model that I want to split all the connected tris into individual trigons. This is for a tutorial that I am working on demonstrating the remove doubles feature and working around mesh that have shapekeys and flipped normals.
If I select a face and press Y that face splits from the connecting tris use the python function
I thought this would be easy simply by walking through the polygons, selecting them and calling the split function.
So I put the model into Edit mode tried this code…
(meshes is defined as the context selected mesh object and the object is in edit mode) for obj in meshes: for sel in obj.data.polygons: sel.select = True bpy.ops.mesh.split() sel.select = False
The code runs without error, but nothing splits.
I don’t want to separate by polys and rejoin as the model is very large.
