    Looking for a modeler tool. I can remember its name!

    I seem to recall that there is a tool in modeler where you can select two adjacent edges and the tool will create a quad that fits them. That would be very handy for something I am working on at the moment. Is there such a tool and if so whats its name? Thanks for any help!

    Thanks erikals. Those tools look like they are very useful. But that is not what I was thinking of. I recall seeing a tool that if you select two adjacent edges it will create a new point on the opposite side of the middle and make a quad that fills the space. Do you know of a tool like that?

    WeldStrip and Railpoly = must have  

    um, yeah, got it, just hadn't covered it...

    note, works on points only, not edges.

    It is one of many modes of EasyMesh working:

    You click on point that is on corner with three other polygons and drag and release mouse button and voila.

    Lertola2 - I think the tool you're describing is Create Rows.
    I use it regularly.

    Funny I knew you had it, so I was looking yesterday to find that gif, but couldnīt find it..so I didnīt bother mention it in this thread.
    So always good when the creator shows up live and verifies the existence of things.

    easy mesh would benefit from snapping (to grid,to point etc)

    The plugins at this site are older, closed source Lscript.

    See the github repository for newer, open source, python versions:
    https://github.com/narudesign-sekig/Lightwave-Scripts

    (...and this is one more endorsement for EasyMesh. It is a great tool.)
