Any idea on how to relax vertices of and editable poly only in z? Either manually or scripting.

Push/pull modifier?

[edit] no that's dumb.

What exactly are you doing. If it's conforming, you can use graphite tools.

No conforming. Just relax in z.

Okay, I think I got it try this: Vertex submode -> normalise constraint on -> relax.

Unfortunately every vertex's normal has three vectors (directions) and thus constraining to normal and then relaxing also affects x and y.

You could save all the xyz coords in an array, relax the mesh and then restore only x and y. Or make a copy of the mesh, relax it and then copy over the z values to the original. Either way.
Not sure the relax operation would give a correct result, though.
