I have an object that is made up of different pieces, its all under one object, but for some reason some of the pieces don't have vertices but they have faces? I want to know what caused it, and how I can get the vertices back.Can select faces but not vertices

  • $\begingroup$ Try looking at it in wireframe mode (SHIFT-Z) which should show you where the vertices are. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It cannot be all one object unless a modifier is affecting the geometry. Having faces but no vertices is impossible. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ hard to say but from the gif it looks like you have the wrong object selected $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It is impossible to have faces without vertices. Maybe the vertices are hidden by some object. Try going in wireframe mode or x - ray mode $\endgroup$ Apr 2, 2021 at 11:49

I know it's an old question but the solution was that the origin of the object was not the world center for me so what i wanted to delete was the mirrored part of the object.

Somehow the object's origin shifted away.
