Mesh Point, Selection

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 179 ✭✭
I've imported a mesh and I want to select a point. Normally, I have no problems selecting the points I want, but sometimes there are points which just can't be selected

Like here, I'm able to select the upper point, but the lower point I'm not able to click on. 

Any pointers as to what I can try or why it doesn't work?;)

    Either that or there's something in the way, sketch, plane etc.  I'd hide everything except the mesh and then start selecting points.

    Here's a video. 

    It looks like the other points I'm trying to select are "behind" a polygon, but shouldn't I be able to select the intersection between a line and a polygon?

    eeeeek! you have 1 part, 6 surfaces and 1574 separate meshes there.  I'm not surprised something is blocking something else.

    1574 separate meshes? I imported this OBJ file and it's one single mesh?
