What I want to do?

I want to slide that vertex group like shown to make 2 new edge loops connecting to each other like a cylinder. Or transforming these 4 vertices into one edge loop would work out. How can I do so?

What I want 2

That's what I really want on front ortho

Either use the Loop Cut and Slide operator Ctrl + R keyboard shortcut to manually place a cut on each side.

Loop Cut and Slide

Or alternatively use the Bevel Edge operator on the whole existing edge loop CtrlB. Make sure you set the Bevel Profile factor to 1 so your current edge loop wont be moved

Bevel Edge

  • $\begingroup$ Bevel won't work because the selected vertices don't make an edge loop. There are only 4 vertices, consider that. But slicing would work in that case! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Loop cut should work fine in that case then, no? $\endgroup$ Jul 5, 2016 at 17:55
  • $\begingroup$ Not in this particular model. Loop cut, cuts all the way up :c Actually what I really need is to extend these vertices into a loop. I edited the question check the 3rd screenshot, you'll get me cleaner $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ What you have there is a non manifold mesh, your edges belong to more than two faces at the same time. I don't think there is a direct way to do what you want, my advice is to erase that part of the mesh and remodel it correctly. If you object is totally symmetrical consider using a mirror modifier instead to make it easier for you $\endgroup$ Jul 5, 2016 at 18:03
