Not only do I not know how to fix the naked edges, which all my edges seem to be, how do I make the points go away. I am experimenting with modeling. I need to use solids as the surfaces are hopeless to add fillets. I guess I will extrude and find edges to fill. The elusive edges that I need to form a stamped metal part. I will keep trying on my own But I really would like to get rid of these points.
Thanks in advance for your help,
PS. I just downloaded Rhino 8. Should I uninstall the Rhino WIP and Rhino Beta? How do I do that.

Well, the points are on the default layer, which is locked. If you unlock it, you can just select them (manually or using
SelPt) and delete them.
Second, your tolerances are WAY to loose for something this small. On something this small, you should go for 0.001 or even 0.0001. Currently it sits at 0.1, meaning that anything below 0.1 inch will be wildly inaccurate. Faces and curves will not join, and a lot of operations will probably fail.
Thanks. I figured it out. I always do after I ask for help. The tolerance issue solved a lot. Still very difficult to model compound shapes. I will finish and submit what I came up with and see what the best approach is to modeling the wheel caster. It is just an exercise for me. Thanks again for your prompt reply.
