I have converted a font to a mesh and I would like to just have the outline. I need to delete all the internal edges without going through all the pain like the image below. The red arrow is a manual delete of one edge. I want all the internal edges gone. Is there a quick solution?
Let's focus on what you want to achieve and not on how. This means asking the question from different perspectives, one being:
"How do I get the outlines of the Glyphs as mesh edge-loops, quickly?".
The result is the same.
As a script
Run this from the Text Editor with the Font object active and in Object mode.
import bpy obj = bpy.context.active_object def convert_to_mesh_outlines(obj): bpy.ops.object.convert(target='CURVE') obj.data.dimensions = '3D' bpy.ops.object.convert(target='MESH') convert_to_mesh_outlines(obj)
If you aren't comfortable with running scripts, the following steps are the manual analog of the above.
