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

 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.
