Iterate the entire model and converts hidden edges to soft & smooth edges.

Can you provide a brief summary as to how that would impact the model, or what the benefit would be, since the edge are hidden?

Hey ThomThom

I haven't loaded this Ruby yet, but I was scanning for new stuff and saw this.

Suggestion to improve it (sight unseen :enlight: ) is to test if any hidden lines can be safely removed, if so, remove them, and if not, only then convert them to S&S. You may also want to add a user control to "Yes/No" the deletion for those who want to convert all the lines to S&S.

I've noticed SU has been getting poor at cleaning up hidden lines after an intersect. This all started happening some time ago after I installed some unidentified (as cause) Ruby. Now I can spend considerable time deleting those stray lines, or converting those I can't to S&S.

I like to keep the lines count down, as well as those extraneous hidden lines do cause problems when I edit the face they are on.
