Basically I wanna make a cut between edge on the right and a vertex enter image description here

But when I try to do it with the knife tool, it creates additional edge that I don't need

enter image description here

So I wonder how can I do it, since loop tool creates another cut, not between these two.

    $\begingroup$ This might be related to the fact that all edges making a face, have to be connected into a single path. So you can't create an "O" shaped face and knife will make an additional cut to deal with this problem. Here's a screenshot of a single face, that has two pairs of overlapping vertices. Pressing A, M, B will create an abomination. i.imgur.com/Ia1D9IO.png $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 1, 2021 at 14:18

enter image description here You can just do it with the knife tool and select the edge you do not want. Then press "x" to delete it, and choose "Dissolve Edges". I hope that helps.

  • $\begingroup$ Then try to delete the two faces that are on each side of the unwanted edge. Then select all the edges around the hole and press "f". $\endgroup$
