I have a script that returns the 4 vertices of a polygon. How can i delete this polygon?

I've tried using bmesh but need the face index and not vertices.

This is a follow up to this question. See it for more details.

v.link_faces gives you all the polys v is used in. So you just need the face common to all the verts.

fs = set(v0.link_faces)

for f in fs:

  • $\begingroup$ are v1, v2, v3, and v4 vertex indices or actual vertices? if they are indices, you need to replace vN in the above with bm.verts[N]. You also need to put bm.verts.ensure_lookup_table() as a line at the start of the code. $\endgroup$ Jan 7, 2022 at 0:46
