Trelis 16.5 User Documentation
At times you may find that you have an extraneous vertex in your model. This would be a vertex connected to two and only two edges. This stray vertex can cause unwanted mesh artifacts, due to the fact that a mesh node MUST lie on this vertex, thereby disallowing the possibility of movement for better quality. Fortunately there is a relatively easy way of getting rid of this stray vertex using the tweak surface command.
To replace with a surface
Tweak Surface <id> Replace With Surface <same_id>
Note that you are replacing a surface with itself. In doing so, the geometry engine will do an intersection check on that surface, and should realize that the vertex doesn't need to be there.
