Don't believe in the word of a person if you can have a proof
Here it was more "Ask for a proof if you (really) can't find how to do it by yourself" :lol:
And I have to say that I almost gave up, it took one and a half hour to find.
Tough battles make big victories. ;)
The culprit is, that the body has no Tip. [...]
:shock: I'd never found it ! Thanks for this detailed complement.

Stonefire, if you know now how to do it, I would recommend you recreate your object from a vanilla file. For one it is an exercise, for the other you get rid of all possible kinds of unwanted and undetected residue garbage in the model.

What chrisb said is that he would advise that you restart your design from scratch (with all you new skills in your backpack). :)
As you probably run a lot of 'trial & error' in your design, at this step your file is really in dire straits. :lol:
Restarting back from blank file will prevent you to waste time solving problems that are actually due to residual scraps.

Sorry, not being a native english speaker I thought it was a commonly used word.

Yep ! :) Used mainly in the software development world. Personally I use it to designate the standard/genuine flavor of something rather than a blank thing. But my mind was flexible enough to figure it out. :lol:
