I have a model made of entirely different objects joined together (none of them are linked) and made a rig for it. I put automatic weights when I parented the model to the rig, but when I checked the weight paint, there were a few bones that had influence over a mesh that I didn't really want.

I could always do it manually and just remove the weight paint myself but I have a fear of messing up everything instead after accidentally removing paint that wasn't supposed to be removed.

So is there a way to remove all weight paint from one specific linked mesh? Most of the automatic weights on the model have pretty much done what I wanted them to do.

    $\begingroup$ Have you tried separating the mesh, then removing the weight paint from it and re-joining it again? $\endgroup$ – metaphor_set Apr 17 at 11:11

    $\begingroup$ Select the linked vertices with CTRL+L then remove them from all vertex groups. Here is a picture where can you find it. blender.stackexchange.com/questions/137137/… $\endgroup$ – FFeller Apr 17 at 11:21
