Does anyone know of a plugin or lscript that will give a new surface based on connected geometry? I found PartToSurface (http://lwplugindb.com/Plugin.aspx?id=e7c4bb04) and Random Surfacer (http://lwplugindb.com/Plugin.aspx?id=e71f9c9c) but neither look to do what I want. I'm not even sure how to use PartToSurface. Random Surfacer has a "Surface Connected Polygons as One" option but it doesn't appear to work. At least it's not doing what I think it should be doing.

[edit]
Ok so I figured out how to use PartToSurface. (I don't normally work with Parts). Is there an automatic way to make parts based on all unconnected geometry?

[edit]
Ok so Random Surfacer is now doing what I want. Must be a Monday morning thing.

Heya Nick
Glad you found a way that worked for you. I know in the past, I have juggled between Parts, Surfaces, the Statistics window (for finding and selecting things still using "Default" as a name) and a fair amount of "Sel Connected". So I can see wanting a macro or script to cut down some of the tool juggling.
