Is there a way to do some limited dissolve either through the built-in Blender tools or perhaps through scripting (if not possible through Blender tools) to remove these types of vertices? Or do I have to remove them manually? I have thousands of these types of vertices. They cause the faces to become non-planar which I try to avoid.

  • $\begingroup$ oh i just realized i could select all vertices at the edge and write a python script that checks if the vertex has only 2 linked edges then dissolve. anyone interested please add your answer and i will accept. but i was also interested if there are any blender modeling techniques available as well to tackle this problem? or is python the only way? $\endgroup$ Apr 21 at 5:29

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots actually im really interested in a blender built-in tool for this. so are you saying it's not possible without python? or manually select the vertices? :) $\endgroup$ Apr 21 at 5:33

    $\begingroup$ I guess you've already tried Shift G and it doesn't work? $\endgroup$
