make new editable poly object...

What's the simplest way to make a new editable poly object to start using the createvert and createface polyops? At the moment I"m just creating a sphere, converting it to editable poly and deleting all it's faces. There has to be a neater way than that. I hope.


Not bad. For a hughman.

From the manual:

ep = editable_mesh name:(uniquename "EPoly") --create an empty EMesh
 convertTo ep (Editable_Poly) --convert to Editable_Poly

Drag that on a toolbar to create a macroscript.. assign it to a shortcut... or read the helpfile some more and make it a proper macroscript
