Selecting vertices, edges, and faces

When you start modeling in Blender, probably the best way to do it is to just start with a primitive and then reshape it, add detail and turn it into the model that you want. Now, you don't have to start with a primitive, but a lot of times it's the best way to start. Now in order to edit any object, including primitives, we need to go into Edit mode in Blender. So, right now we're in what's called Object mode, where we can select the actual objects in the scene. So I'm going to right-click on the sphere and then I'm going to go into Edit mode.

So we can get to it here, we have Object Mode, and then we have a number of other modes, but the one we want to go to right now is called Edit Mode. And notice, when I do this, the actual look of the object changes. We get this wireframe on shaded look, and this exposes the underlying structure of my object, and so now I can start reshaping it. Now in order to do this, I need to select vertices, edges or faces.

So let me sho...
