I am in edit mode and using bmesh to get all faces. I am iteration through the faces and their vertices. Now I want to know on how many faces the vertex, I currently have, is part of.

For example this green vertex is part of many faces.

enter image description here

Right now I have:

for f in mesh.faces:
    for v in f.verts:
        # some stuff before
        # now I need the number of faces the vertex c is part of
        # some other stuff

I know I could simply run through all faces and save the coordinates of the vertices and compare them with other faces and their coordinates - but maybe this can be done more easily.

  • $\begingroup$ Uh, you are right, the link_faces were there, too! I knew this was similar but haven't found it while skipping over it. Sorry! I still am learning. $\endgroup$ – Hamburml May 17 '15 at 13:45

a very nice feature of bmesh :)

import bpy
import bmesh

me = bpy.context.object.data

# Get a BMesh representation
bm = bmesh.new()   # create an empty BMesh
bm.from_mesh(me)   # fill it in from a Mesh

for f in bm.faces:
    for v in f.verts:
        lf = v.link_faces
        print('num faces:', len(lf), 'faces: ', lf[:])
