I wish to divide up a plane in the ratio 1:2:2 .. Can that be done?

Loop cuts seem to divide the plane equally and simply slide in the same proportion

    $\begingroup$ Could you show a screenshot or sketch of desired subdivision ? I'm not sure I understand how ratio "1:2:2" for the plane looks like. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 14 '17 at 11:59
  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried: Edit mode->Select all->press 'W'->Subdivide ? $\endgroup$ – Reaper Feb 14 '17 at 12:02
  • $\begingroup$ Indeed, how does a 1:2:2 ratio look like on a flat plane? $\endgroup$ – Cos Dim Feb 14 '17 at 12:18
  • $\begingroup$ you could try to use the "loop cut and slide" (CRTL-R) tool, create 4 cuts, then select the 2 pairs of vertices that you don't need, and "dissolve" them using CTRL-X $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Feb 14 '17 at 12:24

Here is an example of what I meant in my comment above:

  1. use the "loop cut and slide" (CRTLR) tool to create 4 cuts
  2. then select the 2 pairs of vertices that you don't need, and "dissolve" them using CTRLX

enter image description here

Create your plane
Using Ctrl + R add 3 cuts to the plane on both X & Y axis
Cuts to Plane

Now, leave the first 2 cuts on both sides and press X to get the delete menu.
Ensure, You select "Dissolve Edges" & "Dissolve Vertex" in corresponding command options (Visible in Tools Menu)
Planes Cut Your Desired Plane is Cut in 1:2:2
