This is driving me nuts. I have a scanned OBJ file ~4M faces and I'm trying to clean it up by deleting extra geometry that isn't part of the area I care about.

I'm using edit mode > box select > face and edit > box select > vertex. Both methods have this problem:

The selection doesn't get deleted, only some of it. I don't know why or how, but I just want the selection to get 100% gone.

Help! enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Vertexes can cover each other in solid view mode. Switch to wireframe view (press z) before selecting. $\endgroup$ – FFeller Mar 28 at 15:57
