View Full Version : UNTANGLE, but for Point Loops?

UNTANGLE does a good job of circularizing polys, but it would also be convenient to do the same thing on a POINT LOOP.

i.e., without the bother of actually generating a polygon.

It would seem 90% of the code must be already extant, inside UNTANGLE.

can't u just...
select points, create poly, use untangle, delete poly

I think I have an lscript out there that does this, to some degree... take a point selection, and make them eqiudistant from a common central point. I know I use it a lot. The code's not terribly hard, either, but it does tend to work best on things aligned towards the major axis.

In lieu of that, I would think that making a poly of your point selection, untangling it, and then killing the polygon would work reasonably well. If you need the points to be planar, make your poly, bevel it in 1 mm, collapse it, flatten it, then untangle it, etc. For one or two selections, not a bad thing. For more than a few, it would be a pain.
