Is it possible to add edges like in picture without affecting the smoothed geometry ? If i add in the edge ring with edge ring tool, it will deform the form but i need it to stay perfectly rounded. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Please explain more in depth. What do you mean with smoothed geometry (a subdivision surface modifier)? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I basically need to add edges vertically(where the line is) without changing the roundness $\endgroup$

Use To Sphere tool. After adding the vertical loop cuts select each loop with Alt+RMB, change the pivot type to Individual Origins, press Shift+Alt+S and drag the cursor outwards the mesh. Select the other loop and press Shift+R to repeat the process. Do the same with the other ones. Now you've got additional loops in your mesh and it's also perfectly smooth. enter image description here

EDIT: If you need to add the horizontal loopcuts also you may subdivide your mesh (W-->Subdivide), then smooth the vertices (Ctrl+V-->Smooth Vertex) and increse the Smoothing value to 1.000. As you can see the objects look the same. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for very informative answer. That is how to add edge loops horizontally, but what about adding them vertically? I tried with spherizing tool but it deformed top and bottom of my mesh. But i had only selected one loop. would it work with all loops selected.That way is not good for that reason. Is there another way without using smooth modifier? $\endgroup$
