selecting extraordinary vertices in blender

Extraordinary vertices in a polygon mesh are the ones which are not regular – their degree is other than 6 in a triangle mesh and other than 4 in a quad mesh. Here’s how to select all extraordinary mesh vertices in Blender:

  1. Select a regular vertex.
  2. Select->Select Similar->Amount of connecting edges.
    This will select all regular vertices.
  3. Hit Ctrl+I to invert the selection.
