(R17) splitting polys at specific points

Recommended Posts

I'm tweaking a mesh and want to split a poly at specific points (vertices)  to make it all quads.

While this must be a basic function, I haven't been able to find the right terminology to locate it in Help or the menus.

To rephrase: given an n-gon, how can I manually determine at which points a polygon will be divided to reduce it to quads?

Sorry for the noob question

It is a basic function of the knife tool (line mode, or Line Cut in R18+). OR you can select both points and  hit M,M for Connect. Or use the Polygon Pen - that too can cut across a single poly.

  • ::hedslap::   KNIFE worked  perfectly, but..... I must have been in the wrong mode when I tried it w/Polygon Pen, because I couldn't get it to work yesterday, and now it's easy.  ::sigh::

    Thanks for your assistance to a hapless noob.


    PS:
    FWIW, on my R17 install "CONNECT" is "ALX+X".
