Very basic Blender question


I’ve been following this tutorial and have become a little stuck,

I’ve created the three dice ‘eyes’ for the top of the dice and have aligned them up in the side view and I’m just about to use SHIFT-J (to join them to the dice) then SHIFT-F (to fill the gap between the eyes and the dice itself).

The problem is, although I can see the vertices’s for the eyes I can no longer see the vertices’s for the dice. The dice now appears as just a black wire frame.

How do I see the vertices’s for the dice once again?



To join meshes you need to be in Object mode. Press Tab to go into Object Mode, select the eyes then shift select the die. You can now Ctrl-J the two items to make one mesh. Once this is done press Tab again to go back into Edit Mode.
