What is the python script to do a rip tool (V key) without moving the components after separating the components.

  • $\begingroup$ could you provide your .blend file with your script? Also add screenshots showing the problem. $\endgroup$ – Tak Jan 14 '17 at 12:10
  1. Run the below script
  2. Select an edge
  3. Hit the spacebar and write "Rip Edge" as shown below

enter image description here

import bpy
bl_info = {
    "name": "Rip Edge",
    "category": "Edit",

class EdgeRip(bpy.types.Operator):
    """Rip Edge"""
    bl_idname = "edit.ripedge"
    bl_label = "Rip Edge"
    bl_options = {'REGISTER', 'UNDO'}

    def execute(self, context):
        return {'FINISHED'}

def register():

def unregister():

if __name__ == "__main__":

  • $\begingroup$ I have just copy/pasted your script with import bpy on top in the text editor and run the script after selecting an edge. Does it work for you? $\endgroup$ – Danyl Bekhoucha Jan 14 '17 at 12:14
  • $\begingroup$ It won't work that way, you need to put it in an operator and call this operator $\endgroup$ – Tak Jan 14 '17 at 12:37
