View Full Version : Deleted polys leave behind verts

05 May 2008, 01:50 AM
I am new to Modo and I was wondering if someone can clear up a problem I am having. Having deleted some polys when I switched on the show vertices in the viewport check box I realised a lot of the verts were still there. This screwed up a bridged edge that I was working on. In C4D, which I am used to, there is an optimize function that cleans these strays up. Is there a similar function in Modo. I know about unify but am not quite sure how to use it.

some help would be appreciated

cheers in advance

Hit delete instead of backspace. If you are on a mac use whatever shortcut exists for delete (fn + backspace?)

Yeah, Delete not "backspace delete".
Also you can find those vertices by looking in the Statistics panel and "deleting" from there. I had a model that stopped working for me a while back and I found out I had nearly 700,000 verts floating around because I used the "other" delete button, I found them in the Stats panel, selected them from there, and deleted from there, problem solved.
Good Luck

Is there an optimize function like in C4D and maya where you can delete overlapping verts and unused ones?
