I want to fill this area, and I'm selecting all of the edges and press the key f, it's not as expected. It looks horrible and not filling.

Where i wanna fill

Not filled

I tried to see which vertices are connected and it shows that 3 vertices at the other end of the model is somehow connected and I really cant figure out how that happened! In the picture below, you can see the result of choosing one of the vertices down at the bottom -> shift + G -> Amount of connecting edges.

Connected vertices

The thing is, when I show numbers on the vertices, it doesn't make sense either as the numbers skip at some places which might be the problem of my mesh. But now it's happened 3 times, starting from scratch each time.

Vertice numbers

What am I missing? and is there a way to save this?

I hope I've made myself clear, but it's kind of a hard problem to describe. Feel free to ask if you need more information!

There are a few steps you should do:

  1. Select the top vertices (the ones close together) *on both sides.
  2. Then when you have those selected search-bar "Bridge edge loop" that will connect it.
  3. Now you can select the 'half moon' vertices. press F this will create a plane.
  4. Do this "half moon", make a plan. When you have everything connected you can 'merge' the bigger planes together.
  5. Select the faces and press F this will connect them as I said.

For the oblong like planes you can select the vertices and dissolve them.

You can connect the vertices manually.
This will also create proper topology, which is nice.

  1. Select two vertices and go Vertex > New Face from vertices, F
  2. Repeat, repeat repeat until it's filled
  3. Done :).

    $\begingroup$ Thank you for your answer. I ended up trying the below answer first and it worked. I've taken your advice and will implement in my "toolbox". Thank you! $\endgroup$ – Feltsvinet May 31 at 10:09
