So, I'm an absolute beginner. I just started using Blender in order to create 3D objects to import into Unity, and right now I'm trying to create a lightning symbol. I started with the standard cube and I'm trying to reform it into a lightning, but I need to add more vertices to it and I don't know how. I've searched on Google and found a way to add more vertices but it doesn't appear to be working (I'm probably doing something wrong). Any form of help is appreciated.

It's not that hard, but not particularly obvious either.

  • Switch to edge select mode using the button at the bottom of the 3D view.
  • Select the edges you want to add vertices to.
  • Hit W > Subdivide. (Not Subdivide Smooth! Unless you want your new edge to be rounded, which doesn't sound like the case here.)
  • (Optional) Switch back to vertex mode.

That's all there is to it!

Select two or more vertices, then press F to create an edge.
