I have this mesh

enter image description here

I need to create loops between the selected vertices around the top of the part, keeping the spacing between the loops the same as the source vertices.

enter image description here

enter image description here

I know how to do this 1 at a time with several different methods, ctrl-r, knife tool, g g, etc, but this is time consuming and does not end up with "perfect" spacing.

Is there a faster/better technique?

This is the result I would like to find a faster technique for. This was done using ctrl-r scrolling wheel to the desired number of cuts, then 1-by-1 selecting a loop and g g until the loop lined up with a source vertex. Painful when there are many to do!

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but have you tried selecting 2 vertices and pressing J? $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Feb 16 at 3:06
  • $\begingroup$ @ChristopherBennett Yes, J tries to take the shortest path, which is underneath, not over the top. I'll add a picture of the result I'm looking for $\endgroup$ – Psyonic Feb 16 at 3:13

Duplicate points, seperate points, extrude them and use knife project?
