A colleague and I had to do some pretty tedious stuff for a project, something that would take hours to do and required to modify thousands of individual vertices. Searching and searching for scripts led to the discovery of Ant Stitcher. This is a great tool and drastically decreased our time of moving verts. It costs $49 but its worth it, saves time and money – both very valuable – in the end. Basically it stitches vertices from one object to the vertices of another without having to manually do it.
