I am stuck while following this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28AlRLMlqW8&t=4251s&ab_channel=FlyCat

At 0:33. The youtuber highlighted the vertical line in the middle of the hexagon and did something to make it split into 2 vertical lines.

It happened pretty fast in the video so i took some screen shots too.

enter image description here

Can someone please tell me how he/she did it?

Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ Ctrl + B (Bevel hotkey) - Move the mouse to change the size of the "gap" . Scroll the mousewheel to make extra "loops" $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Sep 24 at 0:48

They used the Loop Subdivide tool. It creates loop cut(s) around the area selected by the user.

  • hotkey: ctrl + r
  • a yellow line shows what section will be cut - click to confirm cutting this section
  • Once confirming the section to cut:

  • scroll wheel increases/decreases cuts
  • move mouse to slide where the cut will happen
  • click again to finally cut
  • Here's the Blender documentation for further reading: Blender Loop Subdivide

    Good luck with the tutorial, hope this helps!
