I have a cone that had a hole in it and I'm trying to get all the faces to match / wrap around correctly / evenly. I tried joining vertices with "J" but I get a message saying "could not connect vertices"

I'm using Blender 2.90.1

File with issue:

Original File where hole was created from.

  • $\begingroup$ Is this like grid fill the 4 x 3 face hole (after removing the 4 "long" faces currently in what I assume was the hole. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @batFINGER Yes I included the original file showing the cylinder sticking out of it. I wanted to delete the cylinder and fill the hole with matching faces all around. $\endgroup$

The 2 vertical edges are ripped:

If I select a vertex, here is what it gives (so you can't join the 2 opposite vertices):

So you need to delete these 4 faces + one horizontal edge that is under the faces (as pointed out by Batfinger, probably the result of a fill (F):

Then select the top and bottom row of vertices and press CtrlF > Grid Fill:

  • $\begingroup$ Would have thought the reason cannot join two verts is when they are already used to form an edge... was that the "one horizontal edge under the faces" possibly from the first time join was used, & not appearing to work? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps F was used and not J $\endgroup$
