I am becoming quite crazy (I am new to Blender: I mean more crazy that you usually are). I wont to make a crown, so I designed a single arm with the torus shaped base sector. I tried to use the array modifier to make all the 16 arms but the results were not as they were supposed to be. After many attempts I found that the bounding box has a strange shape. Therefore I box selected my shape and it has 10.807 vertex out of 10.808. I thought that inverting the selection I could isolate the spare vertex and delete it, but inverting the selection I have 0 vertex selected. I also tryed to copy the 10.807 vertex and paste them in a different instance of Blender, but the bounding box is still there... enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Go into edit mode, unhide all geometry (alt-h), select-all (a). You should have all vertices selected now. $\endgroup$ – Jaroslav Jerryno Novotny Jan 6 at 11:26
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much for your suggestion. The problem is not selecting all vertices, but deleting the 10.808th, that, apparently, distorts the bounding box. On a theoretical point of view, it should be selected when I invert the selection, after having selected all the "good" ones, but practically the inversion of the selection of 10.807 returns 0 vertexes selected. Alt-h has no effect. $\endgroup$ – Valentino Jan 6 at 15:16

  • $\begingroup$ In the end, I solved it but in a weird way. I played a little with select linked and then invert selection, and... it appeared. I deleted the vertex, then adjusted the bounding box rotating the mesh in edit mode and finally, it worked. Thank you very much for your suggestions. $\endgroup$ – Valentino Jan 6 at 16:52
