split merged vertices


 i often merge vertices unintentionally and don't realize it until much later, how do i split the vertices ?

select the vertice you want to split and press ‘v’

Of course there’s always the rip tool…
If you have only quads it is pretty straightforward. If you have tris though, the method is to join two tris that touch the vertice to rip using alt+J, rip, rebuild the tris using ctrl+T. It’s a pain but hey:

  1. avoid tris as much as you can;
  2. avoid to merge vertices that you don’t really want merged :wink:
