How to compute surface distance between two mesh verts...

Post by dvochin » Thu Jul 04, 2013 7:04 pm

Hi, I need to compute the *surface* distance between two verts on a mesh, not the 3D distance... is it possible?

So far the closest to what I need is bpy.ops.select_vertex_path() and adding the lenght of the selected edges, but that is not quite precise enough as that surface approximation doesn't cut across faces toward the nearest path.

Any ideas or addon scripts that can help me do that?

Many thanks!!
