Merge Vertices

Is there a way to select or even delete vertices within a certain distance of other vertices, like merge vertices in 3DS MAX or CAD? I have gridded point data below points generated from lines and I want to cleanup the triangulated result of combining the two. In other words I want to keep my points from the lines and eliminate the gridded points that are overlapped or very close causing messy triangulation of the points.

    While there isn't anything exactly like that, there are a couple of options you could use that might do what you want. If you select the lines and then right-click and choose the Move/Reshape sub-menu command to Simplify the lines you can remove vertices that don't contribute significantly to the shape of the lines. There is also an option under that same sub-menu to Resample the lines. You could use that to resample them at some fixed distance, and thus get rid of closely spaced vertices. I would recommend the Simplify option probably though.
