I am coming from Modo. And in Modo I could select multiple edges and cut loop of them at ones. What I mean, for example, is if I have a cylinder with 32 faces and I need to add an edge loop to every face, I select top edge loop, press ⌥ Alt + C and it cuts every single edge of that loop.

But in Blender when I chose edge loop and press ⌃ Ctrl + R it only cuts which edge my cursor is on. So, do I need manually add edge loop to every edge one by one?

I found only one tip for that problem, select face loop, insert it but it works on simple geometry but for complex shape it doesn't work perfect.

You should be looking at the subdivide operation.

enter image description here

Here, in edge mode, I've selected two edge rings (ctrl alt RMB on edge, then shift ctrl alt RMB on edge, at least for me; interfaces may vary depending on startup interface choices) on the left, and then used a subdivide operation. I accessed the subdivide via the context menu ('w' key for me) followed by selecting subdivision ('s').

We can see that it made a loop cut through both of the edge rings that I selected.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, Wow. It is 99.9 percent what I want. It even enables some fancy posibilities. )) So, first thing first, for this to work, I need to select all edge loops where I want new loop cut will go. But with like you said, via edge ring and select->edge Loops->edgeLoop menu, this will work. With Ctrl+E and subdivide Edge-Ring function, it even makes smooth loops and keeps curvatures with blend surface interpolation choice. For some reason it doesnt work pecfect with subdivide :/ The only problem, I cant slide new loop same as loop cut tool. But technically, I can with extra steps $\endgroup$
