Edge Loop

Create an edge loop around the surface of a PolyNURBS.

This tool can only be applied to quad (four-sided) faces. The edge loop is created perpendicular to the selected edge and continues through all quad polygons until it reaches either an open edge or a non–quad polygon.

  1. On the ribbon, click the PolyNURBS tab.
  2. In the Split group, click the Edge Loop icon.

  3. Click the PolyNURBS object.
    Edges will be indicated in yellow upon hovering.
  4. Choose from the following options:
    • To create equally spaced snap points along the selected edge, enter a Subdivision Snap value.

      For example, if you want to add a vertex one-quarter of the way along a selected edge, set the Subdivision Snap value to 3; doing so places 3 control points along the edge to create four evenly spaced subdivisions.

    • To add one vertex at each Subdivision Snap point in one click, select Multiple Split.
  5. Click the edge to split, and then (if Multiple Split is not enabled), without releasing mouse button, you can drag the division point to reposition it.
  6. Right-click and mouse through the check mark to exit, or double-right-click.
