Default light blue edge lines..

Hello all..

Quick question here..

I'm modeling a natural-looking cliff wall in AC3D (just registered it recently.. great program!)..

For some reason, there's a single row of edges that are this light blue color. I don't know why they're like that and I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of them... I'm guessing they're a flaw due to something I did wrong while modeling.

If anyone knows what I'm referring to and can explain what they mean and how to fix them, that would be very appreciated! Thanks!

The Light blue (they are called "Cyan" in the documentation) indicate invalid geometry (1 or 2 verticees, vertexes??? points whatever. they can be removed by selecting the object and from the main menu bar select Object - optimize vertex and then Object - optimize surfaces. They don't show up in renders, but it does eat up some resources keeping track of them.

Have Fun
