I wonder what's the best workflow for a such basic task:

Enter image description here

Enter image description here

I want that the plane would have the same two corners. I got stuck at the 7th step.

Two questions:

  1. How can I cut that duplicated edge from a plane?
  2. Is there a faster way to achieve the same result?

It makes it easier to fix any mistakes or typos, and also makes the question indexable, so it is searchable and easier to find for future users and people with similar issues. $\endgroup$ Apr 29 at 16:07

It could be a CtrlShiftB, 1-segment Vertex Bevel:

You can adjust to precision in the operator's F9 Adjust Last Operation panel.

Thanks to @John Eason for the reminder.. While modelling, always have your object's Scale CtrlA applied to (1,1,1) for predictable results from operations and modifiers.

Edit: The shipped add-on 'TinyCAD' can find the projected intersections between lines, and insert vertices at the closest approach. If you have a lot of that to do, you could set up shortcuts for that.

Without add-ons, this could be a way? There's probably a better one..

enter image description here

With Snap set.. 'To: Vertex' and 'With: Active'

  • K cut an arbitrary edge, to insert vertices
  • ShiftD duplicate the vertices of the template edge.
  • GX with and GY, switching active vertices, snap to the target corner, one dimension at a time
  • Snap the pre-cut vertices to the duplicate, and M > 'By Distance' merge everything down.

    $\begingroup$ Just apply the scale first in object mode (CTRL-A) if the plane isn't a square or the bevel won't be at 45 degrees! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Nice. Thanks. I guess that's the answer, but could you also help me with the first question? I might use it for other things in modelling. Cheers! $\endgroup$ Apr 29 at 16:01
