Mass split poly between vertices - NGon editing
show user profile  topofsteel
I am editing a mesh exported from another program, the problem I have is at intersecting walls. Where the poly on either side of the wall meet the other, there isn't a edge, but there is a vertex on the top and bottom. I cannot create an edge between the verts with the other polys intersecting. So I need to move them, create the edges, delete the poly and target weld them back. I'm looking for a better workflow. If I could mass connect all verts with an edge, it would just be a matter of erasing polys. Can anyone suggest a better workflow? Thanks.

That workflow is fine. Use snaps and connect and it's done in a few clicks. Don't see the issue.

What happens if you select all verts in that area and just hit connect? Doesn't that "mass connect" all verts? It should..

@herfst1 I have several hundred intersections like that.

@Octopuzzy HELL YEA! Damned if I hadn't already tried everything. I swear that brought them all to a point. Thank you.

You probably hit "collapse" before..but cool.
