I am not even sure what to call it. The model was not created by me, but I wanted to mess with it. It came in OBJ and I went through and combined it all together. After messing in the menus I discovered this under object data. I clicked this, and now the rest of the mesh is gone, and I don't know how to bring it back.

This is my problem.

  • $\begingroup$ 1.Have you tried to search it in the outliner, and change x,y,z loc to 0? 2. If it appear in the outliner, select it and clic on Object (right to Add) => Transform => Origin to Geometry. After this, try again the step 1. $\endgroup$ – Hack0re Sep 18 '15 at 17:55
  • $\begingroup$ Everything is already at the correct origin, and zeroed out (I think). The problem I have is as seen in the image I can only view one part of the mesh at a time. When I loaded it initially I could view the whole thing I don't understand what I did. $\endgroup$ – David Prentice Sep 18 '15 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think that is helping hack0re. I figured out what its called its called "Linked mesh data". Still don't know what to do with it =/ $\endgroup$ – David Prentice Sep 18 '15 at 18:03
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe you can share the blend, someone can try to fix it. $\endgroup$ – Hack0re Sep 18 '15 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ Okay I figured it out. All those different mesh data links where links from the original mesh I placed on the second layer for safe guarding. I deleted the original mesh, and was left with only the options I wanted and my original mesh reappeared. $\endgroup$ – David Prentice Sep 18 '15 at 18:25

As mentioned in the comments the OBJ mesh I imported had several "parts". What I did was when I went into object data I was viewing the old parts from the original mesh I imported. So I deleted the original mesh with so many "parts". Afterwards the only things I seen in mesh data were my object, and my floor plane. I selected my object, and it reappeared.
