Is there any way to do something similar to Maya's insert edge loop tool, where the edge loop wraps around the triangle? (Using Ctrl + R makes the edge loop stop before the triangle)

    $\begingroup$ I don't think this function is built in, but I guess you could always Knife Project an edge through the mesh. $\endgroup$ – Allen Simpson Mar 12 at 15:00
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I am aware of the knife tool but I was looking for something more convenient, like this Maya tool so you can do all of the steps in one place. $\endgroup$ – frankerzederede Mar 12 at 15:05

    $\begingroup$ Knife project is a little different from the knife tool, you can define a shape and then use that shape to cut all the way through something with respect to the current camera view (ortho or perspective) $\endgroup$ – Allen Simpson Mar 12 at 16:00
  • $\begingroup$ I see. That's also a great alternative $\endgroup$ – frankerzederede Mar 12 at 18:08

  1. In wireframe mode you can select easily all the edges what you want to cut at once.
  2. To create the new loop on them select Edge>>Subdivide.
  3. Now you can adjust the number of cuts on the bottom-left.
  4. If you want to move them, select a loop and double hit "G".
  5. To create more loops after the move, select a loop and choose Edge>>Bevel Edges.
