this maybe basic but I don't know if there is an easy way to do this. What I want to do is to easily be able to convert a mesh of tris into quads without haveing to go through and manually select two tris at a time and merge them into a quad. Is there a script that does this? Most the time when you import or export it has to be tripled. it would be nice to have an untriple feature. There may be one I just don't know it.

thanks for the help

There are several ways to do this, with varying results.
when you use the built in reduce poly's (not reduce poly's +), it will combine as many poly's into one. You will get quads, and poly's with more points. Can be messy.

Best solution so far I've found is MergeTrigonsX. you can find it on www.flay.com . There are some others on that site too, but I didn't have too much success with them.
