Event Timeline

Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

2.8 add-on code uses looptris, which only generates triangles, while in 2.7 it was using tessellated data, which could also generate quads.

Don’t think that this is a bug, more like some design decision, but will let @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) decide here.
