Undoing Subsurf

Does anyone know how to undo an applied subsurf? I don’t know when I did it, so there is no using Control-Z to undo it that way. Is there a an UN-subdivide or something?

Is there a an UN-subdivide or something?
No, there are poly reducer options but not a un-subsurf algorithm. Just append the unsubsurfed object from a previously saved file or manually delete edge loops

Maybe give a try to this addon :

It’s a port from the unsubsurf script from 2.49b , can’t say if it works on 2.64 , and may not always produce the desired result, but it’s always worth a try.

you could always delete loops manually

not fun but keeps the quads faces


Thanks for the suggestions, guys. They’re really helpful, I appreciate it a lot.
