I need to add an edge to a model at an angle without distorting the overall shape.

I can add a loop cut and rotate, but this skews the model

I'd like to keep the lines consistent, so I don't want to deal with scaling after rotating. I'd assume there is an easier way to do that, but maybe not.



Instead of doing a loop cut you can use the Knife tool.

  1. Press K to start the knife tool.

  2. Optional step: If you need to cut 'through' the mesh (so the cut goes all the way around) press Z to toggle the Cut through option on.

  3. Click once above the mesh and once below to create a cut across the mesh:

  1. Press Enter to confirm the cut.
