Are there any tools in Blender that take irregular polygons and make them regular (approximate a circle)? I'm specifically looking for a solution that works with preexisting polygons. Also, it would be nice if it keeps the overall position after making it regular.

You can use LoopTools addon, which is already with the official Blender builds.

Enable this addon from the Add-Ons list, then select the target face, then W > LoopTools > Circle, which will distribute vertices circularly and evenly.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, try it out. :) But Circle is exactly what the OP wants, I suppose. $\endgroup$ – Leon Cheung Feb 13 '15 at 17:32
  • $\begingroup$ Well it would still be wise, seeing how the question is worded (and covers more ground than the OP might notice), to mention that Loop Tools can do much more. This makes the question and answer more useful to future visitors. $\endgroup$ – A Wild RolandiXor Feb 13 '15 at 19:22
